Abstract

On April 27th and 28th 2013 an international workshop was held in Toronto, Canada to support, encourage and further develop emerging research on the public health implications of criminalizing HIV non-disclosure, exposure and transmission. It was the first international meeting focused exclusively on sharing, critiquing and strengthening new empirical research on this topic.

This report explores three key themes that arose over the course of workshop discussions. The report also offers suggestions for new directions for future research on the public health implications of criminalizing HIV non-disclosure, exposure and transmission.

Keywords: HIV, Criminalization, public health
