Voir ceci en français

These submissions are informed by the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network’s and the HIV & AIDS Legal Clinic Ontario’s (HALCO) extensive experience in working on the issue of the criminalization of HIV non-disclosure in Canada. We include concrete recommendations for police that could be addressed in a general Best Practice Manual, and recommend the development of specific guidelines in relation to non-disclosure of HIV (and possibly other sexually transmitted infection), in consultation with people living with HIV and the Ontario Working Group on Criminal Law and HIV Exposure (CLHE), as well as other relevant stakeholders.
