Today, we are delighted to announce a new version of the HIV Justice Network (HJN) website, www.hivjustice.net.
The centrepiece of the new website is the Global HIV Criminalisation Database, which comprises three separate but interrelated databases:
Each section of the Database also features an interactive search tool and global map providing a visual account of where different kinds of laws are used, where various types of cases have been reported, and where organisations operate.
“We hope this new, improved version of our website will continue to be an essential source of up-to-date information for individuals and organisations advocating against HIV criminalisation around the world. We would especially like to acknowledge GNP+’s tremendous work developing and promoting their Global Criminalisation Scan, and take seriously our responsibility as custodians of global HIV criminalisation data moving forward” – Edwin J Bernard, HJN’s Executive Director.
