HIV, Disclosure and the Law: Community Forum

What are the human rights of people living with HIV in Alberta? In what circumstances do people living with HIV have a legal duty to disclose their HIV status? What can happen to them if they fail to disclose their HIV status when they have a legal duty to do so?

AIDS Calgary, CATIE and the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network invite you to join us for a community forum where we will explore the answers to these and other questions related to HIV, human rights and the law.

Date: Tuesday, March 17th 
Time: 9:00am to 12:30pm
Location: MacEwan Conference and Events Centre
                2500 University Drive NW, Calgary

Jessica Leech, Team Leader of Community Strategies at AIDS Calgary will begin the morning with an introduction to human rights. This will be followed with a presentation on HIV, Disclosure and the Law by Glenn Betteridge, a Lawyer and Community Advocate.

Space is limited. Please RSVP to Coral Bush by phone at 403 508 2500 or email
