Policy Recommendations on HIV-Criminalization

by European HIV Legal Forum

“HIV criminalization” refers to the use of criminal law to penalize alleged, perceived or potential HIV exposure; alleged nondisclosure of a known HIV-positive status prior to sexual contact (including acts that do not risk HIV transmission); or non-intentional HIV transmission.

These policy recommendations are based on and derived from the AIDS Action Europe policy brief on HIV criminalization.
