My Blog: Criminal HIV Transmission


Now featured on LexMonitor, a daily review of law blogs and journals.

Criminal HIV Transmission is a collection of global news stories, articles and opinion about so-called 'HIV crimes'.

It began in July 2007 as a personal research tool – a way of archiving reports from around the world. However, it became clear within a few months that it might also be a useful resource to others. 

In the past year, more than 20,000 people from 162 countries have viewed the blog, of whom almost 2000 are regular visitors (averaging between 9 and 201+ visits a year).

"The best blog on the web." 

Justice Edwin Cameron, Constitutional Court of South Africa

 (HIV and criminal law in Sweden. Stockholm, Sweden, June 2009)

"A really remarkable resource."

 Matthew Weait, author Intimacy and Responsibility, The Criminalisation of HIV Transmission

(HIV in Europe. Stockholm, Sweden, November 2009)
