Knowledge, autonomy and consent: R. v Konzani

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

  • Matthew Weait

This article examines the legal and policy issues surrounding the sexual transmission of HIV in the light of the Court of Appeal's recent decision in Konzani. He argues that criminalisation founded on a person's reckless non-disclosure of their positive HIV status casts the net of liability too wide and risks doing more harm than good. The non-intentional transmission of HIV is better dealt with as a public health issue.
