T Cells & Jail Cells: HIV Research & Criminalization
HIV criminalization laws contradict the body of knowledge gained over the past three decades of HIV research. These antiquated, draconian laws exacerbate the HIV epidemic, and they are disparately enforced, targeting and unjustifiably harming key populations in HIV clinical research?especially communities of color, people involved in sex work, and all communities bearing the double burden of overrepresentation in the HIV epidemic and the penal system. The HIV research enterprise has an obligation to protect clinical trials participants and the greater public from the injustice of these laws. This workshop will present data on the harmful impact of HIV criminalization and generate advocacy strategies for response.
