5128.0 HIV/AIDS & the Criminal Justice System: Prisons & Beyond

Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 10:30 AM
As HIV has become an infection that may be managed much like other chronic diseases, a focus on treatment and prevention continues. Efforts to conduct HIV testing, engage infected individuals in care, and reduce HIV transmission risk are priorities as HIV prevalence rates increase. The HIV/AIDS Section seeks to disseminate study findings related to criminal justice systems as they influence HIV care and prevention in order to improve future program planning and inform needed research efforts. This session is aimed to share latest research on topics related to criminal justice systems. The section identified this area as a priority, as high rates of HIV infection persist in jail and prison settings. The section supported the development of session in order to share innovative approaches to criminal justice systems.
