    Global Criminalisation of HIV Transmission Scan

    The Global Criminalisation Scan is an initiative of GNP+. It aims to collect and keep up to date information on national and state level laws criminalising the transmission of or exposure to HIV. It also aims to provide an easily accessible ‘clearing-house’ of resources, research, and initiatives on the subject and to provide a platform for advocacy initiatives.

    Find out more about the scan and the criminalisation of HIV transmission legislation at http://criminalisation.gnpplus.net/.
