Abstract: Although the Kenyan government has taken positive steps to address the HIV epidemic in Kenya, and to advance women’s reproductive health and rights, much work remains to be done, particularly in protecting the rights of women living with and affected by HIV. Following an earlier report from the Federation of Women Lawyers–Kenya (FIDA Kenya) and the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), Failure to Deliver: Violations of Women’s Human Rights in Kenyan Health Facilities, which focused on women’s experiences seeking reproductive health services in the deeply troubled Kenyan health care system, this report examines the specific implications of those systemic weaknesses for women in the context of HIV. While focusing primarily on HIV-positive women’s experiences within the context of maternal health care, the findings and their implications highlight the need to strengthen the Kenyan health care system overall and to ensure stringent protections of patients’ rights in general, with special attention to the rights of HIV-positive people seeking health care.
