The Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network (“Legal Network”) welcomes this opportunity to make a submission to the International Commission of Jurists’ consultation on “Developing principles to address the detrimental impact on health, equality and human rights of criminalization with a focus on select conduct in the areas of sexuality, reproduction, drug use and HIV.” In this submission, the Legal Network focuses on four key areas of our work:
• Criminalization of sex work;
• HIV criminalization;
• Criminalization of drug possession for personal use; and
• Criminalization of same-sex intimacy.
