The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) at Yale University has completed an in-depth review of scientific studies on the criminalization of HIV exposure in the United States. The review appears in the current issue AIDS and Behavior. Dini Harsono, Assistant Director for Clinical Health Services Research at CIRA, is the lead author of the article. Collaborating authors include two prominent members of CIRA’s longstanding work group on the Criminalization of HIV Non-Disclosure, Carol Galletly of the Center for AIDS Intervention Research in Wisconsin and Zita Lazzarini, UConn Health, and CIRA’s Executive Director, Elaine O’Keefe. This is the first comprehensive examination of empirical research on this topic in the US, examining studies conducted between 1990 and 2014. In addition to describing the research and key findings, the review discusses implications for practice and policy that emerge from the studies reviewed, identifies gaps in our current knowledge, and sets the course for future research in this area.
