CHLP Releases New Resource on Women and HIV Criminalization (2011)

The Center for HIV Law and Policy today released a new briefing paper, What HIV Criminalization Means to Women in the U.S. The paper looks at practical and legal questions often raised about using criminal law as a response to women's risk of HIV infection or transmission. It is intended for use by women affected by HIV and their advocates.

Special thanks to consultant Anna Forbes for her drafting input, and to Vanessa Johnson from the National Association of People with AIDS and Brook Kelly from The Positive Women's Network (PWN), a project of WORLD (Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Diseases) for their review and contributions.
