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 is a national resource and advocacy organization working to advance the rights of people affected by HIV.
