Andrew Doupe

December 2001

Andrew Doupe, was diagnosed HIV-positive at 21. Currently he is a UNAIDS staff member working on the World AIDS Campaign. Over the years he has been an advocate for the human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS, writing his Masters thesis in Public International Law -- "AIDS and Human Rights: Time for an Empowered Response," which argues that people living with HIV/AIDS should be accorded minority status at international law.

He feels that HIV-positive people need to stand up for rights. "Confidentiality is needed for people when they find out their HIV status. But to grow as a person, people who are HIV-positive need to be open about their status. In this way we can stop the stigma around AIDS."
