Huge Concerns Over New HIV Criminalization Law in Uganda
So, President Yoweri Museveni has just signed “The HIV and AIDS Prevention Control Act of 2014” into law in Uganda, and it’s a discrimination doozie. Here’s what it says:
- HIV+ people can get 10 years in prison plus a fine for “intentional transmission of HIV”
- Or, they’ll get 5 years in prison for “attempted transmission of HIV”
- There will be mandatory testing in Uganda for pregnant women
- And, the government will have the ability to release a person’s HIV status to the public without their consent.
