Fear of contagion clouds our thinking about the transmission of HIV

There is no legal obligation on a person with HIV to disclose their status, nor is there a law that provides a specific penalty for knowingly transmitting the disease. For the second time this year, this legal situation is being tested in the courts. This raises serious questions about our understanding both of HIV the disease and of personal responsibility with regard to health. Is the contraction of HIV, now a treatable long-term condition, “serious harm”? Who is at fault for contracting a disease? What does fault mean? These are very difficult questions and have vexed societies for as long as contagious diseases have circulated them.

Here's why eight very HIV-positive folks out there in the U.S. choose not to disclose to anyone but close family, friends, and lovers -- even as some of them say they want to go public!

Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, and Grindr: Frank Pasquale Talks About Big Data and HIV Disclosure

Recent scandals involving Facebook's selling the data of its users to Cambridge Analytica and gay-dating app Grindr's mea culpa on selling data on the HIV status of its users have raised a lot of questions about privacy and the unintended consequences for people with HIV, or using PrEP, or just searching for information on those issues on social media. I spoke to Frank Pasquale, J.D., M.Phil., professor of law with the University of Maryland about these issues. Pasquale is an expert on the law of big data, predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, and algorithms.
