This book covers 64 wide-ranging topics related to HIV and AIDS, in a concise format that is easy to use for lawyers and people without legal training. It should be an invaluable resource for lawyers, policy makers and other practitioners with an interest in countries' responses to HIV. The book explains how laws and regulations can either underpin or undermine good public health programs and responsible personal behaviors. Each topic provides a concise summary of the key legal and policy issues, provides relevant ""practice examples"" (often citing from actual laws and regulations) and offers a selective list of references for each topic that may be consulted for more detailed information.
