AIDS Law Unit (ALU)
The Aids Law Unit (ALU) Project, established in 1999, seeks to promote a human rights based response to HIV/AIDS in Namibia, focusing on both the infringement of civil and political rights on the basis of HIV status and the denial of socio-economic rights that contributes to vulnerability to HIV and negatively impacts on health outcomes.

ALU project addresses issues of discrimination and other rights issues pertaining to HIV/AIDS on a number of levels including, inter alia, litigation, research, policy formulation, education and advocacy with a view to placing HIV/AIDS on the agenda as a human rights issue and the provision of basic client services in terms of legal advice and assistance to people with HIV/AIDS. The ALU hosts the regional offices of the AIDS and Rights Alliance for Southern Africa (ARASA).
