There is a relationship between HIV / AIDS and human rights. HIV / AIDS is the most severe epidemic to hit the globe and the African continent in particular. It is now well known that HIV / AIDS infects and affects human beings in various ways. This article contends that, at best, the HIV / AIDS pandemic in Africa can be addressed within a comprehensive human rights framework. As part of the global response to HIV / AIDS, the article explores, in depth, the role of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights in addressing the HIV / AIDS scourge within its structural mandate of promoting and protecting human and peoples' rights in Africa.
