So many harms, so little benefit: a global review of the history and harms of HIV criminalisation

This review shows that HIV criminalisation is a global concern inconsistent with the human rights-based response to HIV espoused in UN strategies for decades, and adds to the legal and societal burden faced by vulnerable populations. It is enabled by laws and a criminal legal system that in many cases have not caught up with the science of HIV.  An understanding of the impact of HIV criminalisation can contribute to ensuring that human rights are at the centre of national HIV strategies.
