HALCO and CATIE are pleased to announce that our updated HIV disclosure: a legal guide for gay men in Canada is now available. The guide is also available in French Dévoilement du VIH : guide d’information sur le droit pour les hommes gais au Canada.
The updated guide includes important new legal information about the criminal law and HIV non-disclosure that resulted from the Supreme Court of Canada decisions in October 2012.
The guide, written for gay men living with HIV, offers information about HIV disclosure and Canadian criminal law. It also has information about disclosure and other areas of the law, such as public health, privacy, employment, travel and immigration. The guide provides resources and contacts for more information.
You can download the guide as a pdf from our website:
