Recent Trends in HIV Criminalization

The Center for HIV Educational Studies & Training (CHEST), part of Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY), hosted a presentation on recent trends in HIV criminalization featuring CHLP Legal Director, Ivan Espinoza-Madrigal on September 17, 2014. As part of this presentation, Espinoza-Madrigal explained how the criminal law is too often used to prosecute and penalize people living with HIV for conduct that would be legal if they did not get tested or know their status.
