HIV is Not a Crime IV National Training Academy | The Ohio State University​ | sabato, 30. maggio 2020

HIV is Not a Crime IV, (HINAC) the fourth national training academy to educate, train and mobilize 300 people living with HIV (PLHIV), stakeholders and policy leaders to mobilize state-level advocacy to end HIV-related criminalization, will be held May 30-June 2, 2019, at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
Criminalization reform efforts continue to grow across the U.S., and around the world, recognized as a critical effort to reduce HIV transmission as well as to protect the rights of, and improve health outcomes for PLHIV. It is vital these grassroots advocacy and mobilization efforts are informed by the latest science and research, expert strategy and well-grounded research. Equally important is that they work in coalition with other social, racial and economic justice movements in their states, which HINAC helps to facilitate.
In recognition of the many forms criminalization takes, its disparate impacts on marginalized communities and the many ways advocates can address it, the program of HINAC IV will celebrate successes, explore continuing challenges and dive deeply into the areas where change can happen: state legislatures, courtrooms, prosecutors’ offices, media and in the HIV community itself.
