HIV Criminalization Resources
The HIV Criminalization Resources Document includes general, academic, and educational materials on HIV criminalization in the United States that will help public health professionals broaden their knowledge on this subject. It focuses on the growing body of evidence that HIV criminalization laws are ineffective public health measures that do not reflect our current understanding of HIV science; ongoing efforts to reform these laws across the country; and public health-based alternatives that can contribute more effectively to preventing and ending HIV transmission and HIV stigma. The document also discusses emerging issues related to data confidentiality and ethics with HIV criminal exposure laws.
