Doing HIV Justice: Clarifying criminal law and policy through prosecutorial guidance
A video documentary by Edwin J Bernard and Nicholas Feustel
Produced by georgetown media for the HIV Justice Network
Doing HIV Justice demystifies the process of how civil society worked with the Crown Prosecution Service of England & Wales to create the world’s first policy and guidance for prosecuting the reckless or intentional transmission of sexual infection. The result is fewer miscarriages of justice and a better understanding of HIV throughout the entire criminal justice system.
This 30 minute educational and advocacy video explains how the guidance was developed, what challenges the key stakeholders faced and overcame, and what benefits have resulted.
