Effects of the Criminalisation of Communicable Diseases (2019_2_40_007)


This research proposes to analyse the following using applied economics methods: (1) the public health implications of HIV-related criminal legislature, empirically studying how such laws affect test uptake and the prevalence of this communicable disease; and (2) the relationship between prevention-treatment polices and criminalisation policies. This research aims to empirically and theoretically assess the relationship between two major pillars of communicable disease policies.
