This statement on the July 2015 updated National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) limits its assessment of needed action steps to 1) broad public ignorance about HIV, STIs and identities associated with stigmatized diseases; 2) the criminalization of HIV; 3) HIV related discrimination in criminal justice and immigration detention facilities, and in the military; and 4) the need for focused prevention, health services and policy reform on behalf of sex workers and people who inject drugs.
Resource
Almost every type of HIV-related discrimination is rooted in gross misperceptions about the actual routes, risks and current realities of HIV transmission and treatment. We created this fact sheet as part of a larger effort to replace that ignorance with information about what is currently well-known about how HIV is and is not transmitted, and how modern HIV care has transformed the health and longevity of people living with HIV.

This new report, co-authored by Catherine Hanssens, Aisha-Moodie Millis, Andrea Ritchie, Dean Spade and Urvashi Vaid, with input from more than 50 legal, advocacy and grassroots organizations working on LGBT/HIV criminal justice issues, recommends federal action to address pervasive profiling, punishment and imprisonment of LGBT people and people living with HIV.
