Limit the unjust use of the criminal law in cases of HIV non-disclosure

Federal, provincial and territorial justice ministers from across the country are meeting in Vancouver in mid-September, and the issue of HIV criminalization is on their agenda.

Join the Canadian Coalition to Reform HIV Criminalization (CCRHC) in sending a message to the ministers that action is needed to address the unjust, overly broad use of the criminal law in cases of alleged HIV non-disclosure.

Last year, on December 1, World AIDS Day, Canada’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada made a historic statement of concern about the overly broad use of the criminal law in Canada, acknowledging that “the over-criminalization of HIV non-disclosure discourages many individuals from being tested and seeking treatment, and further stigmatizes those living with HIV or AIDS.” Isn’t it time that governments in Canada heeded the federal justice minister’s words and limited unjust prosecutions of people living with HIV?

Feel free to add to the message below or leave it as is.

Your message will be sent to the federal Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, and the 13 provincial and territorial justice ministers.

When you have finished modifying the message, fill in your contact information and then click send.
