HIV/AIDS, Human Rights, and Legal Services in Uganda: A Country Assessment

This report presents the findings of a review of legal services for people living with HIV/AIDS and other vulnerable and at-risk populations conducted in Uganda between September and November 2007. Based on interviews with civil society organizations (CSOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) working on HIV, policy makers, people living with HIV/AIDS, and government bodies, the review examines the legal and policy framework related to HIV/AIDS in Uganda and interrogates the extent to which this framework offers real protection and facilitates access to justice or other mechanisms of redress for those living with, affected by, or at risk of HIV/AIDS. The review concludes by identifying several opportunities for programming that will address the dearth of HIV-related legal services in Uganda.
