HIV/AIDS and Human Rights

V P Srivastav (Author)
Synopsis Safeguarding human rights is an essential part of responding effectively to the AIDS epidemic at individual, national and global levels. HIV strikes hardest where human rights are least protected, particularly among people and communities on the margins of the society including sex workers, injecting drug users and men who have sex with men. Across the globe more than 40 million people live with HIV, half of whom are women and half the new infections are occurring in young people under 25. Over the past six years, antiretroviral treatment for AIDS, while falling short of a cure, has slashed HIV death rates. At the same time, human rights violations, including stigma and discrimination faced by people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, still constitute a major barrier both to prevention efforts and access to care, Besides adopting Some specific international human rights instruments, all member states of the UN adopted a Declaration of commitment on HIV/AIDS in June 2001 which pledged to scale up the response to HIV/AIDS within a human rights framework. The book titled “HIV? Aids and Human Rights” covers a wide range of issue like rights of HIV/AIDS patients of HIV/AIDS patients and International guidelines for HIV/AIDS etc. Scheduled in eighteen chapters, this book not only analyses the imperatives, dimensions and deficiencies but also provides valuable suggestions to guide the national and global response to AIDS keeping in tune with the fast changing situations and requirements. This book is must to all those interested in having knowledge about HIV/AIDS patients’ human rights apart from teachers, scholars, students of human rights and police.
