Read this interesting article by Justice Edwin Cameron and the former Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, Anand Grover: Criminalizing the right to health: The shared struggle of the HIV and safe abortion movements.
“Every single year, more than 22,800 women and girls die due to complications from unsafe abortion – a stark reminder of the life and death consequences of criminalizing health care. In 68 countries, people living with HIV face laws that criminalize non-disclosure, exposure or transmission, which not only have a negative impact on prevention, but can discourage HIV testing and disclosure.”
