GMHC | GMHC Releases New Report, "Fenced in: HIV/AIDS in the U.S. Criminal Justice System"

This comprehensive report documents how mass imprisonment often destroys relationships, healthcare regimens, and employment opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals.  As a result, communities with high rates of incarceration also tend to have high rates of HIV infection.  The state of HIV care and prevention inside prisons and jails is also examined, and comparisons between states in the U.S. and countries across the globe are explored.
