New Resources: Criminalization of HIV non-disclosure
Access our new suite of multimedia resources on the criminalization of HIV non-disclosure — an updated set of info sheets, two short videos breaking down the current problematic state of the criminal law in Canada, and a webinar series explaining an individual’s rights and responsibilities with respect to HIV disclosure.

Sex Work on Parliament Hill
When Bill C-36, the federal government’s potentially lethal sex work bill, went before a special parliamentary committee, the Legal Network presented our arguments on the health and human rights implications of the bill. We also joined hundreds of legal experts calling on the government to reconsider its seeming disregard for the Supreme Court’s 2013 ruling. Get informed on the dangers of Bill C-36 by reading this Q&A.

More Know Your Rights
Disclosure as a patient, privacy in health records, disclosure in daycare, and privacy as a parent — read the latest installments in our 8-piece series addressing the privacy rights and disclosure obligations of people living with HIV in a variety of day-to-day contexts.

Forward Momentum
Our latest annual report highlights our work between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014, and looks ahead to our new strategic plan.
