Abstract/Citation: The aim of the legal and regulatory analysis is to improve the availability of information and evidence of legal and regulatory aspects in the context of HIV and AIDS, for purposes of making recommendations for creating and strengthening an enabling environment that promotes an effective national AIDS response in accordance with the Republic of Namibia’s National Strategic Framework 2010/11-2015/16 and the National Policy on HIV. The assessment has been conducted by way of a desk review of documentation on selected laws, regulations and policies and a qualitative assessment of the level of knowledge on human rights among key and vulnerable populations; and of the degree of awareness of HIV related laws and human rights among law makers and law enforcers to enable effective implementation of services, access to justice and enforcement of HIV-related laws and rights.
