Canada: New study finds majority of women living with HIV who also inject drugs face legal obligation to disclose HIV status to sexual partners

A new study presented to the IAS conference in Vancouver, Canada found that 44 per cent of women within a research cohort of people who use injection drugs living with HIV in Vancouver would be legally obligated to disclose their HIV status to their sexual partners. Within the study, 65 per cent of male participants compared with only 45 percent of female participants satisfied the Supreme Court of Canada’s legal test for HIV non-disclosure. This says that people living with HIV must disclose their HIV status to a partner before sexual activity unless both a condom is used and a low HIV viral load is present.

Serosorting in the Age of PrEP

Josh Kruger writes: In the past, HIV+ and HIV- men often sought partners of the same status. Is it still, or was it ever, necessary? Sometimes, I’ll hear HIV-positive people talk about how the best way they can prevent HIV is to only date or have sex with other HIV-positive people. I can understand this line of thinking; I used to hold the same sentiment. Still, the longer that I live with HIV, and the more advances I see being made in science, I think we need to scrap this idea altogether.

Philip Christopher Baldwin talks about living with hep C in the gay community

I did not have the courage to tell people that I had Hep C, worried that others would gossip about me. There were no role models in the media for co-infection with HIV and Hep C, which made it harder to be open. I had fought so hard to be an out gay man, and now I was hiding something that was inextricably linked to my sexuality, to my identity and to my core sense of who I am.
