Infographic from UNAIDS shows levels of discrimination against gays around the world

Friday, January 10, 2014

This infographic from UNAIDS shows the legal status of protection or discrimination against homosexuality in different countries around the world. Obviously, the criminalization of homosexuality presents major barriers to accessing treatment and healthcare services for HIV/AIDS and other STIs, which is the focus of the organization. While more than half the world's countries either protect or do not punish people for being gay, there are more countries with laws punishing homosexuality than there are that protect them from discrimination.
