Don’t criminalize people on HIV treatment

The Globe and Mail published an op-ed by Julio Montaner, a UBC-Killam professor of medicine and the UBC-St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation chair in AIDS Research, and Kora DeBeck, a professor at SFU’s School of Public Policy and research scientist at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS.

They wrote that “we know that in the context of HIV infection, undetectable does equal untransmittable and therefore criminalizing HIV non-disclosure – and stigmatizing those living with it – is simply wrong.”
