Punishment is NOT a Public Health Strategy: The Criminalization of Viral Hepatitis in the United States

This webinar was presented on October 4th, 2018 by Harm Reduction Coalition’s Mike Selick, Arpita Appannagaria and Kate Boulton from The Center for HIV Law & Policy, and Tina Brouder from National Viral Hepatitis Round Table.

The webinar focuses on the intersections between harm reduction principles, current trends in syringe service programs, treatment access for viral hepatitis, and efforts to reform laws criminalizing HIV and viral hepatitis. This webinar seeks to jump start advocacy efforts to address the criminalization of viral hepatitis across the country. You can also opt into regular communications about these efforts on the webinar registration form. We intend to follow up a small November convening on these issues with another webinar to report out on progress and next steps. We are organizing a small convening in November with advocates in order to plan for next steps.  We will be following up with future webinars to report our progress and to get input and feedback for strategy.
