This report explores three key themes that arose over the course of an international workshop held in Toronto, Canada on April 27-28, 2013, to support, encourage and further develop emerging research on the public health implications of criminalizing HIV non-disclosure, exposure and transmission. It was the first international meeting focusing exclusively on sharing, critiquing and strengthening new empirical research on this topic. The report also offers suggestions for new directions for future research on the public health implications of criminalizing HIV non-disclosure, exposure and transmission.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy challenges barriers to the rights and health of people affected by HIV through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources. We support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change that is rooted in racial, gender, and economic justice.
