"If criminalization were the answer to preventing new HIV transmissions, southern states, which have the highest HIV transmission rates in the country, should theoretically be the states with the least amount of new transmissions."

That observation is from "We Can’t Get to Zero if Science Isn’t the Hero," a June 4, 2020 AETC NCRC's ShareSpot by Kamaria Laffrey, who writes about living with HIV, stigma, and the potential consequences of a topic seemingly rarely raised: HIV criminal statutes. 

Read more ShareSpot blogs on the AETC National Coordinating Resource Center (NCRC) website. See also the NCRC Stigma topic page (with resources like HIV-related State Laws) and the TargetHIV Stigma/Legal topic page, featuring the Trauma-Informed Approaches Toolkit.
