The Global Criminalisation Scan through its regional partners documents laws, judicial practices and case studies, around the criminalisation of HIV transmission. The Global Criminalisation Scan is the only collection presenting these data on a world wide scale.

The Global Criminalisation Scan is an initiative of GNP+ and partner organisations and aims:
