Journal Raises Concerns about HIV Prosecutions, Dyana Bagby, Southern Voice

This news report summarizes research, published in 2005 in an online sexuality research journal, that raises concerns about continuing criminal prosecutions of people living with HIV and the creation of “AIDS criminals.” This research on the impact of criminal prosecution of HIV-positive persons is collected and discussed in the Sexuality Research and Social Policy Journal issue entitled “Reckless Vectors: The Infecting ‘Other’ in HIV/AIDS Law.” According to Gary Kinsman, one of the journal’s reviewers, Reckless Vectors “addresses what has become a largely neglected aspect of AIDS research, the continuing stigmatization and criminalization of people living with AIDS/HIV.”
