Summary/Abstract: HIV transmission have been on the increase across Europe - most noticeably in a series of cases in Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. During this same period, HIV incidence and prevalence has increased, particularly in the countries of Eastern Europe and the Western and Central Asian Republics. In light of this and high profile media coverage of HIV transmission cases, there is concern that States might increasingly choose to legislate the criminalization of the transmission of HIV and prosecute people who transmit HIV, leading to the infringement of the human rights of people living with HIV or AIDS (PLWHA).
