Abstract

Criminalization of HIV transmission is an ineffective tool for combating AIDS and a costly distraction from programmes that we know work--programmes such as effective prevention, protection against discrimination, reducing stigma, empowering women and providing access to testing and treatment. In this article, which is based on a plenary presentation by Edwin Cameron, the authors advance ten reasons why criminalization is poor public health policy.
