Canada: OK for condom users with low HIV viral load to hide status
2012-10-06 09:11:38 | (0 Comments)
Canada's Supreme Court has said people with a low HIV viral load and who use condoms need not reveal their condition to a sexual partner.
The justices ruled unanimously that disclosure was required only when transmission was a realistic possibility.
Several HIV/AIDS groups said condom use was enough, describing the viral load caveat as a major step backwards.
The ruling modified a 1998 law that said failure to reveal HIV status was a form of aggravated sexual assault.
