Abstract

Introduction: One of the health problems in Indonesia that has not been resolved is the HIV pandemic or
Human Immunodeficiency Virus or a virus that attacks/infects white blood cells which causes a decrease in
human immunity. To combat HIV/AIDS, treatment is performed through antiretroviral drugs. But in fact,
antiretroviral drugs are often scarce which causes a decrease in the welfare of people with HIV / AIDS in
Indonesia.
Research Objectives: This study aims to discover and analyze some policies on administering antiretroviral
drugs that are fair for people with HIV/AIDS in Indonesia.
Methods: This study uses a qualitative method with a normative juridical approach. The data used are
secondary data consisting of primary and secondary legal materials. The data was collected through a
literature study and analyzed qualitatively.
Conclusion: In making policies, the implementation of antiretroviral drugs must be centered on PLWHA
and use the PLWHA as policy actors. The policy of delivering ARV drugs that are centered on PLHIV
is expected to produce fair policy outputs and then have implications for the high welfare of PLWHA in
Indonesia, this is in line with the formation of a policy based on the study of responsive legal theory initiated
by Nonet and Selznick. Responsive legal theory requires that the law that has implications for PLWHA,
should always be sensitive to the needs of PLWHA, especially regarding the availability of ARV drugs.
