The 2008 manual published by ARASA is a plain language guide to HIV/AIDS and human rights in the Southern African region. It is aimed at a wide range of people, such as paralegals, lawyers, social workers, counsellors, people working in AIDS service organisations (ASOs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), educators and trade union members. It gives readers practical information on how law and policy can protect and promote human rights in the context of HIV/AIDS, and how the laws and policies in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries have met this challenge. It also looks at ways to strengthen a rights-based response to HIV and AIDS in Southern Africa.
