Waiting for the Inevitable: Criminalization of HIV/STD Transmission

By: Healthy Options Project Skopje

This video shows the impact of Article 205 of Macedonia’s Criminal Code, which has been used to detain and test sex workers for Hepatitis C and prosecute those who test positive. Different experts in HIV prevention and human rights discuss the paradox of this article’s use by police and the courts and the development of effective prevention from infectious diseases among vulnerable groups. This video calls on a wider expert debate for more detailed analysis of Article 205 of the Criminal Code and its interpretation in the courts, which would be based on respect for the human rights of all people equally.
