AIDS 2010: Law Enforcement Leaders for Public Health and Rights

AIDS 2010: Law Enforcement Leaders for Public Health and Rights

For more information on this session, including access to speaker presentations, please see the conference Programme-at-a-Glance.

Participants of this roundtable include a chief of criminal policy, a high ranking police colonel who worked in drug law enforcement and the head of the Argentinean Public Defender’s Office. The moderator will lead the participants in a discussion of how law enforcement may contribute to a positive response to HIV, human rights, and public health and how the HIV community can engage the criminal justice system in a constructive dialogue. The theme of drug policy will be given a particular attention, focusing on how we may divert drug users from a punitive criminal justice system of over crowded prisons or compulsory drug treatment camps into a public health system that mitigates drug related harms.
