A specialised network of organisations responding to the issues of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in Kenya has come in for some unwelcome publicity. This after it used a photograph of one of its own staff on its website, with a caption that identified her as “an HIV positive sex worker waiting for treatment”. The staffer in the photograph was awarded damages by Kenya’s HIV/AIDS tribunal, but her employers appealed. They argued that it was not “demeaning” to say someone was a sex worker nor was she defamed when it was said of her that she was HIV positive. What would be the response of Judge Joseph Sergon of the High Court in Nairobi?
