HIV Criminalization Legal and Policy Assessment Tool

CDC in collaboration with ChangeLab Solutions developed a HIV criminalization legal and policy assessment tool to assist jurisdictions in evaluating their laws to ensure they align with current scientific and medical evidence. This tool aims to help public health professionals, policymakers, legal counsel, and partners understand how HIV criminalization laws intersect with data privacy laws in their jurisdictions and to facilitate conversations among partners.

CDC is also collaborating with ChangeLab Solutions to establish a learning lab to help states apply the HIV criminalization legal and policy assessment tool.

To end the HIV epidemic, public health, criminal justice, and legislative systems must work together to ensure that laws are evidence-based and just, and support public health efforts.
