Pretoria: University of Pretoria, 2002. 75 p.
Review 2002 asks the question "Whose right?" This is both in question of whose interpretation is right in developing an AIDS response and understanding, and also whose rights are being addressed or abused. Review 2002 situates HIV/AIDS within the broader field of human rights and of stigma, prejudice and discrimination. The Review looks at what contitutes a rights-based approach to HIV and AIDS and the international guidelines on which such an approach can be based. It sets up the various paradoxes and debates between individual and group rights - and between African and Western understandings, fair and unfair discrimination, the enforcement and limitations of rights, and how all this is applied in the context of HIV and AIDS.
