Since the introduction of effective treatment in 1996, people with HIV are increasingly viewed by the criminal justice and public health systems through the lens of their potential to infect, as viral vectors and inherent dangers to society.

The Sero Project is a network of people with HIV and allies fighting for freedom from stigma and injustice.
