HIV Disclosure and the Law: A Resource Kit for Service Providers
With regularity, people living with HIV (PHAs) continue to be criminally prosecuted and convicted for not disclosing their HIV-positive status to sexual partners. As of December 2015, more than 170 people in Canada had been charged for not disclosing their status. Until the law is changed, criminalization is a reality that the community must live with and respond to. This Resource Kit is intended to provide both PHAs and service providers with useful information and tools to make informed and empowered choices about how to respond to criminalization.
This Resource Kit is produced with the partnership of AIDS Coalition of Nova Scotia, Canadian AIDS Society (CAS), Coalition des organismes communautaires québécois de lutte contre le SIDA (COCQ-SIDA), HIV & AIDS Legal Clinic Ontario (HALCO) and Positive Living B.C.
