Abstract

This article examines whether criminal punishment can be used for preventing the spread of HIV / AIDS and whether a special criminal law statute is necessary in this regard. While answering these questions in the negative, it argues that efforts aimed at curbing the spread of HIV / AIDS have a greater chance of success in a climate of openness and education than in one of prohibition and punishment. The limits of criminal law as a means of preventing HIV / AIDS transmission are thus explored and the case is made against the introduction of a special criminal law statute on HIV / AIDS in Malawi.
