It may have been a very good idea to include the special rapporteur on Health and Human Rights, Mr Anand Grover on this list and Panel. He is not just a leading legal light on the issue of HIV and Law, he may even safely be described as a pioneer, who has helped form and shape a large part of the jurisprudence on HIV and Law.

I hope his inclusion and involvement in the process is not overlooked along the way.

Best regards,
Aditya Bondyopadhyay
