24 April 2013, Mozambique – The Government of Mozambique submitted an amended HIV Law to Parliament for consideration which removed provisions to criminalise HIV transmission from Law 12/2009, amongst other things, and suggested further provisions to strengthen rights-based protection in Law 5/2002 (relating to HIV in the workplace). UNDP Mozambique supported the process by reviewing and commenting on the law.
