This HIV Policy Resource Bank category includes materials focused on the basic facts of HIV transmission: how it does and does not occur, and the different transmission risks through various identified routes. However, these materials also focus on disputes or misunderstandings about the routes and relative risks of HIV transmission and how those misunderstadings affect policy and legal decisions.
CHLP fights stigma and discrimination at the intersection of HIV, race, health status, disability, class, sexuality and gender identity and expression, with a focus on criminal and public health systems. As part of this work, we support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change rooted in racial, gender and economic justice. We do this through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources.
