Tips for documenting disclosure and protecting against an HIV criminalization prosecution
The Denver Principles Empowerment Index
The Sero Project’s Denver Principles Empowerment Index will be a quantifiable measure of not-for-profit AIDS service providers’ adherence to and fulfillment of self-empowerment ideals in their delivery of services, governance, development of program and policy, advocacy and provision of HIV treatment information.
The Empowerment Index is designed to achieve several important goals:
- Improve health outcomes for people with HIV.
- Incrementally evolve not-for-profit HIV social service delivery from a traditional benefactor/victim model to one that is more partnership-based, focused on empowering the clients served.
- Increase client participation in civic and political processes.
To learn more about the Denver Principles Empowerment Index download the full pdf here.
Even in states without an “HIV-Specific” statute,
people with HIV are at risk of prosecution under other criminal statutes.
