This article is based on research on the response to drug use and HIV in Armenia and its conflicts with international law. It was conducted via an assessment of legal documents, resolutions, and position papers on drugs, human rights, and HIV, and an analysis of their practical exercise in Armenia. The article provides an overview of challenges to effective responses to drug use and HIV in Armenia, outlines the rationale for adopting human rights-based approaches, provides justification that the latter approaches would allow Armenia to better comply with its obligations under international treaties, and proposes policy recommendations for the promotion of human rights-based approaches.
