A Roadmap for Change: Charting the Future of HIV Criminalization Advocacy

On December 1, 2017, after years of advocacy by community organizations, the federal and Ontario governments recognized the need to limit the “overcriminalization of HIV.” Both governments acknowledged that criminal prosecution for alleged HIV non-disclosure is not warranted where a person living with HIV had a “suppressed viral load” (i.e., less than 200 copies of HIV/ml of blood) because such an individual poses no “realistic possibility” of transmitting the virus—the Supreme Court’s legal test for whether a duty to disclose existed. These developments have the potential to affect the lives of people living with HIV across Canada by curtailing the reach of the criminal law—but much more is still needed.
