The Judgement came after successful litigation by Julius Juma who is a KELIN trained pro–bono advocate. He was part of the first ever training for lawyers in Kenya on ‘HIV, Law and Human Rights ‘which took place in November, 2012 in Nairobi. The judgement opens doors for people living with HIV to assert their right to work and for the right to equal pay for equal work done for both men and women. The judgement took into account the provisions of international conventions that Kenya has ratified, which saw the claimant awarded approximately 83000 USD. KELIN welcomes the decision and celebrates new opportunities for the right to equality and non – discrimination for people living with HIV.
