Russian Ministry Of Health Proposes Legislation To Criminalize Spreading False Information About HIV/AIDS
The Guardian: Russia wants to make HIV/AIDS denialism illegal to halt epidemic
“…Russia’s ministry of health this week put forward legislation that would make it illegal to spread false information about HIV, targeting those who reject its existence or question the link between HIV and AIDS and doctors’ ability to treat the disease. … Up to 1.2 million Russians have HIV and an additional 100,000 cases were recorded in 2018, according to official estimates. Only about a third of those with the virus are receiving antiretroviral therapy…” (Roth, 5/3).
