Asia Catalyst has launched the Asian AIDS Law Database

http://www.yazhoudiaocha.com/laws/

From the description and press release

This database presents and links to English-language information about HIV/AIDS-related statutes from countries in Asia. Chinese-language information is provided where available. The database is a

free, user-friendly resource, searchable in Chinese and English, to help researchers to find HIV/AIDS-related statutes throughout Asia. It is the first database exclusively dedicated to this purpose. The database has over 100 records, ranging from Cambodia’s draft law on drug control to the national policy on HIV/AIDS of Bangladesh. 

Asia Catalyst is a US-based resource for grassroots organizations working on HIV/AIDS in Asia.

Measure DHS – demographic and health surveys

Measure DHS offers demographic and health indicators by country. Some statistics are freely available, while registration is required to access some of the other data sets. Many of the datasets provide not only national figures, but also regional or state data.  Measure DHS is a useful supplement to the World Health Organization, UNICEF and World Bank statistics Web sites.

The two principle free databases are STATcompiler and  the HIV/AIDS Survey Indicators Databases.
