The Modernization of HIV Laws in Nevada; Changing Legislature

Andre Wade provides an overview of how the state of Nevada addressed a structural barrier to HIV prevention and care by modernizing its HIV duty to warn laws. HIV criminalization laws, a.k.a. duty to warn, were established across the nation in the early 1990’s as part of the 1990 Ryan White CARE Act – requiring states to certify that they had adequate laws in place to prosecute individuals who knowingly exposed another person to HIV. These outdated and discriminatory laws aided in increasing HIV stigma, hindered disclosure of HIV status, and created barriers to access to HIV prevention and care services.
