Factum of the Interveners at the Supreme Court of Canada: R v. Mabior and R v. D.C.

“These appeals raise the question of whether the offence of aggravated sexual assault can and should be established for HIV non-disclosure in circumstances where, in the Interveners’ submission, there is no ‘significant risk’ of transmission because of factors that dramatically reduce that risk, such as the use of condoms or an undetectable or low viral load.”
