African Judges Meet To Discuss HIV/AIDS-Related Human Rights, Legal Issues

More than 50 African judges and magistrates on Tuesday met at a workshop in Nairobi, Kenya, to share HIV/AIDS-related experiences with human rights and the law, Xinhua reports. “Kenya’s Supreme Court President Willy Mutungai said the meeting will provide an opportunity for judges and magistrates to discuss effective strategies and programs for judicial education so as to help ensure the various judiciaries are able to make informed decisions on HIV-related human rights issues,” the news service writes (10/30). “The dialogue held from Monday to Thursday aims to bring forward recommendations of the Global Commission on HIV and the Law in increasing awareness among key constituencies on issues of rights and law with respect to HIV and boosting civil society’s ability to campaign, advocate and lobby,” Bernama writes, noting, “The workshop is organized by the Judiciary Training Institute and Kenya Ethical and Legal Network in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP-Kenya) and UNAIDS” (10/30).
