Get Your Life Back
Becoming HIV+ when you didn’t know you were exposed to risk feels like having your life taken away. We’re here to help get it back. The Mulwade Foundation is shamelessly shining a light on this issue, breaking the taboo that we face through no fault of our own. We have a very clear message – intentional or reckless HIV transmission is wrong.
An increasing number of cases are coming to light concerning individuals knowingly or recklessly infecting someone else. Doing so is a serious criminal offence, carrying a maximum sentence is 15 years in prison.
In England and Wales, you may be found guilty of intentional or reckless HIV transmission if all of the below apply:
you had sex with someone who didn’t know you had HIV
you knew you had HIV at that time
you understood how HIV is transmitted
you had sex without a condom
you transmitted HIV to that person
Did you know you were exposed to HIV?
If you have contracted HIV after being exposed without your knowledge, we’re here for you. Get free, discrete advice, support and guidance.
Reckless HIV transmission can mean a lengthy prison sentence
Supporting your friend?
Asking questions about HIV is important to our learning & understanding of it, but remember there’s a time and place for such questions, and it’s crucial to present as being strong & supportive, rather than offensive.
