Criminalisation of HIV transmission/exposure

Bonaire
Whether Specific law enacted: 
-
Number of people prosecuted: 
1
Number of people convicted: 
0
Applicable law: 

Infectious diseases law of the Netherlands.

Discussion: 

From the information received, it appears that there was only one case of prosecution of a person transmitting HIV.

However, this did not lead to a conviction, as there were mental health issues involved.

Activities and media work is focussing in particular on prevention and care issues and on creating support of people with HIV.
