Describe the normative basis for using international law to reduce health disparities. Identify the shortcomings of well-intentioned laws (e.g., ACA) that inadequately address the care and treatment of persons afflicted with HIV/AIDS. Recognize the strength of adopting a multidisciplinary approach, rooted in a rights-based approach, by examining how drawing from the legal, ethical, and epidemiological considerations may yield a more robust and effective prevention strategy, consistent with the broader goals of the ACA and similar legislation domestically and abroad.
