ACO has endorsed the UNAIDS Policy position
on criminalization of non-disclosure of HIV status
This statement by the UNAIDS Reference Group on HIV and Human Rights is issued to support the recent documents and their recommendations against overly broad criminalization of HIV exposure and/or transmission. These documents recognize that, in the overwhelming majority of cases, applying criminal law to HIV transmission or exposure does more harm than good. Rather than introducing laws criminalizing HIV exposure and transmission, countries need to change laws and policies that stand in the way of effective HIV prevention and treatment.
