The Solomon Island’s Penal Code does not include HIV-specific laws.

The Environmental Health Act 1996 (Ch 99) includes sections on notifiable diseases, but HIV is not included.

There have been no known HIV criminalisation cases in the Solomon Islands, which had only 12 diagnosed people living with HIV as at 2018.
