The Michigan Coalition for HIV Health and Safety

The Michigan Coalition for HIV Health and Safety is focused on modernizing the current HIV criminalization law. In Michigan, a person living with HIV can go to prison for up to 4 years for not disclosing their status before any sexual activity, even if there is little or no risk of transmission. HIV is the only virus in Michigan that has a felony to which it is attached. The MI Coalition for HIV Health and Safety has unified around principles for a modernized law.
