Activists protest against new HIV/AIDS law

HIV/AIDS activists have petitioned the Constitutional Court of Uganda seeking nullify provisions of the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Act that the president signed into law in 2014. Some of the provisions the activists consider problematic are those which provide for mandatory testing of HIV among expectant mothers and their partners, disclosure of HIV status by medical workers without the consent of those tested as well as criminalising HIV transmission. The activists filed the petition in the Constitutional Court in Kampala.
