Abstract:During the past ten years HIV/AIDS has become one of the major health problems in Tanzania. To date, however, no definite policy or piece of legislation to deal with the plight of people living with HIV/AIDS has been put in place. This article compares international laws and regulations dealing with HIV/AIDS with the Tanzanian law. It focuses on the rights which have been infringed because of HIV/AIDS: the right to privacy, right to health, right to freedom of movement, the right to work, the right to marry and found a family, the right to insurance and social security, freedom of speech, expression and press, access to information and education, the right to separation, divorce and the custody of children, and the right to succession/inheritance by a section of the people.
