Routes, Risks, and Realities of Infectious Disease Transmission, Prevention, & Care: Information & Resources for NYC Prosecutors & Law Enforcement Professionals, CHLP et al (2022)
In 2021, major prosecutors and their representatives from the five New York City boroughs gathered with public health officials from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to discuss issues, concerns, and updated scientific data on HIV and infectious diseases. The product of the convening and ensuing discussions resulted in this reference sheet by CHLP and the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys that encapsulates basic information about the mechanisms of infectious disease transmission, prevention, and treatment to assist prosecutors and other law enforcement professionals to make informed decisions in cases that may involve HIV or other infectious diseases.
