Criminal Law of the Kyrgyz Republic, Law about HIV/AIDS in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The key wording of the law is not known.
The specific law about transmission of HIV was introduced in August 2005. Other sexually transmitted infections are also subject to prosecutions under the Criminal Law, statute 118 (Administrative Law about wilful neglect of transmitted infections examination and treatment).
According to our information there have been no prosecutions for the 'sexual' transmission of HIV from one individual to another. However there have been at least 15 prosecutions for transmission brought about by medical negligence. All of these prosecutions occurred in 2008. It is our understanding that as of September 2008 this had resulted in 3 convictions.
