Criminalize Hate, Not HIV

Many thanks to Matthew Weait (follow on twitter here) for alerting me to this excellent video. It's been produced by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) as part of their 'Criminalize Hate, not HIV' campaign, launched back in 2010.

In England and Wales, more than 10 cases have been prosecuted since 2002 under the Offences Against the Person Act, a 'catch-all' law from 1861, for grievous bodily harm. This film is a commentary from a selection of experts about the criminalisation of HIV transmission in England and Wales. It brings together a selection of policy makers, programmers, advocates, academics and people living with HIV to inform the public debate.
