Elements of a Just Criminal Law Response to Allegations of NonConsensual Exposure to a Serious Infectious Disease: A Guide For Policy Makers is excerpted from CHLP's Community Advocate Toolkit, a go-to resource for community advocates working on state-level HIV criminalization modernization efforts. This quick-reference resource comes from a proposed report that The Center for HIV Law and Policy prepared for UNAIDS following a series of meetings involving legal and scientific professionals knowledgeable in HIV law, policy and science; and government officials and policy makers from around the globe in 2011-2012.
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.
