The Government of Canada knows that HIV is not a crime.

At AIDS 2022, the Government of Canada announced a national consultation on law reform, which ended in January 2023. Yet, to date, the government has taken no concrete steps to advance law reform.

No more waiting. It’s time for law reform in Canada.
