Boy, it sure would be nice if lawmakers made laws based on all of the information available instead of just partial information. emoticon

It would be great if the lawmakers educated themselves better on the disease before enacting laws about it. Then again, that goes for any other laws as well doesn't it?

Advances Worldwide in Advocacy Against HIV Criminalization

Advances Worldwide in Advocacy Against HIV Criminalization

A new report shows that significant advances have been made worldwide against inappropriate criminal laws and prosecutions for HIV nondisclosure, according to a statement by the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+) and the HIV Justice Network, which coauthored the report. Advancing HIV Justice reviews an 18-month period from September 2011 to March 2013. In that time, advocates have generated social science showing the ways that overly broad HIV criminalization can be harmful; advocates also challenged laws and sought reforms, and they addressed legal processes and enforcement. The report also shows that complex intersections of laws, policies and practices—in addition to social, epidemiological and cultural contexts—challenge the progress of reform.
