Zambia Denies Inmates AIDS Drugs

Zambia’s convicted prisoner accuses the authorities of violating his human rights and those of other HIV-positive inmates

Zambia’s convicted prisoner, George Mwanza, has accused the authorities of violating his human rights and those of other HIV-positive inmates by failing to provide them with adequate care.
 
Mwanza, who is awaiting trial for statutory rape, told a courtroom packed with HIV/AIDS activists clad in white T-shirts that, "I have been prevented from accessing the anti-retroviral drugs and therapy from the clinic."

In the same vein, Southern Africa Litigation Centre’s Priti Patel, says the case is ‘the first of its kind’ and could have massive repercussions given the high levels of HIV in Zambia's jails.
