Not disclosing that you are HIV positive is illegal in Canada and people are being charged and convicted. Advocates argue that this is not the way to prevent the spread of the disease, and that this approach is actually having a detrimental effect on HIV prevention work.

We have heard the headline and probably many times: "Man charged with infecting several women with HIV."

This story is part of a growing worldwide trend to criminalize HIV transmission.

This criminalization, along with the corresponding media sensationalism, is raising alarm bells for those working on HIV/AIDS prevention.

To explore the implications of this criminalization of HIV Stark Raven speaks with Michael Vonn, policy director of the BC Civil Liberties Association.
