The Sero Project is pleased to launch this new national survey to assess attitudes on HIV criminalization among people living with HIV (PLHIV) in partnership with the Health Not Prison Collective and 34 national and state networks and media partners. POZ is a media partner.
You are invited to participate in a research study to better understand the views of people living with and affected by HIV about criminal laws in a situation where a person living with HIV is accused of not disclosing her or his HIV status or of HIV exposure or transmission.
You will be asked questions about your views on criminal laws in a situation where a person living with HIV is accused of not disclosing her or his HIV status. The survey will also ask your opinions about some very sensitive topics regarding sexual practices and your own HIV status.
This study is sponsored by Sero, in partnership with the Health Not Prison Collective, including partner networks of PLHIV: Positive Women’s Network, Transgender Law Center, Counter Narrative Project and the U.S. People Living With HIV Caucus.
The principal investigator is Tara McKay, PhD, at Vanderbilt University. The name of the study is “National Survey of PLHIV Attitudes toward Criminalization of HIV non-disclosure, and perceived, potential or actual HIV exposure or transmission.” Funding provided by Gilead Sciences.
This survey is intended for people living with HIV in the United States. Your answers will help determine the information and advocacy needs regarding this important issue. We will not share any identifying information about you or any other survey participant to anyone.
We are pleased to launch this important national survey as part of a study to assess attitudes on HIV criminalization among PLHIV. We encourage you to learn more and take the survey.
