ROTW: Legal Toolkit for Attorneys Handling HIV-Related Prosecutions

Monday, May 06, 2013

  • Center for HIV Law and Policy

This publication was created primarily as a go-to resource for lawyers representing people living with HIV who are facing criminal prosecution based on HIV status. However, other advocates are likely to find the Legal Toolkit useful. The Toolkit includes charts, articles, guidance, case law, legal analysis, scientific data and citations to empirical studies on the impact of HIV criminalization on individuals affected by HIV. The Toolkit pulls together into one place a wealth of information, both quick-reference resources (e.g. a Chart on the Relative Risk of HIV and other STIs) and links to longer reference materials (e.g. sample briefs) that are located, along with a summary of each document, in CHLP's online HIV Policy Resource Bank. I hope that your office finds this resource to be helpful and please feel free to share this resource.
