'What if you could witness a face-to-face confrontation between a man living with HIV and the sex partner accusing him of not revealing his status? Wouldn't you like to be a fly on that wall? The fireworks could be mighty, as emotions raged between the  accuser and the positive person trying to defend his actions. What might that meeting look like, exactly?'

Lomcebo Dlamini, Swaziland. Lawyer and Activist, Women in Law, Southern Africa (WLSA).

“As a country we’re really struggling with what to do with HIV from a legal perspective—not only the criminal lawyer. There was initially a panic and a lack of understanding of the issues—a hard line taken by the criminal law in terms of wanting to punish HIV transmission under things like ‘attempted murder’.  But overtime and with the additional education that has been around, I think we have moved from that extreme position.
