The mission of HIV JUSTICE WORLDWIDE is to seek to abolish criminal and similar laws, policies and practices that regulate, control and punish people living with HIV based on their HIV-positive status.
We believe that this HIV criminalisation is discriminatory, a violation of human rights, undermines public health, and is detrimental to individual health and well-being.

What are the benefits of joining HIV JUSTICE WORLDWIDE?
By joining HIV JUSTICE WORLDWIDE, your organisation can become part of a vibrant global community of advocates fighting to abolish HIV-related criminalisation.
As well as receiving our newsletter, your organisation will also have access to our listserv, a safe space to discuss and share information not in the public domain, where we can share resources, mobilise for rapid response to cases and proposed laws, and inspire advocacy to oppose existing laws criminalising people living with, and vulnerable to, HIV.
What if there is more than one person in our organisation who wants to join HIV JUSTICE WORLDWIDE?
Only one person from each organisation can fill in the join the movement sign-up form. Once you have been added to the listserv, you will receive email instructions on how to add others from your organisation. We need to ensure that everyone who is part of the listserv signs up to our mission statement and endorses our values and principles in order to keep it safe space to discuss sensitive issues outside of the public domain.
What if I am individual who would like to be part of the movement?
Individuals with no organisational affiliation are unable to join HIV JUSTICE WORLDWIDE, which is for organisations who are working to end HIV criminalisation. You can, however, subscribe to our newsletter if you haven't already.
