During the 2013 American Medical Association Medical Student Section (AMA MSS) Interim Meeting, the AMA MSS passed a resolution to address the criminalization of HIV. The resolution, titled "Discrimination and Criminalization Based on HIV Seropositivity", calls for "consistency of federal and state criminal laws with current medical and scientific knowledge" as well as encourages public education on the negative clinical and public health consequence created by HIV criminalization. The full resolution can be found here.
