Should Not Telling Be a Felony?

Criminalization of HIV Non-Disclosure


If you have HIV, should it be a crime to have sex with someone and not disclose your status? What if you have HIV, but wear a condom and take medication so your viral load is undetectable?

On February 28th, law professors from Harvard and Northeastern met at the Harvard School of Public Health to debate the legal, moral and practical perspectives of HIV non-disclosure. Dr. Iain MacLeod, a post-doc at HAI, moderated the panel.
