On Monday, February 24 Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni passed into law the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, making homosexuality punishable with life imprisonment. Persons living with HIV who engage in a sexual relationship are also subject to life imprisonment. In addition to these horrendous laws, it is now illegal to aid or abet another person to engage in acts of homosexuality. The passing of the Ant-Homosexuality Bill will have a devastating impact on Uganda’s HIV prevention and treatment efforts. Below is a collection of articles, opinion pieces and statements in reaction to Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill as well as other related issues around LGBTI rights globally.

Where does Canada stand in realizing the dream of being AIDS-free?
Globally, there is good news. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that in 2012, 13 countries, many in the African continent, showed an annual growth in the number of people on anti-retroviral therapy outpacing the number of new HIV infections. This 'tipping point' is a welcome development and an important step toward the ultimate goal of 'getting to zero': zero new infections, zero AIDS-related deaths and zero discrimination.
