Mass Incarceration, Housing Instability and HIV/AIDS: Research Findings and Policy Recommendations, Ginny Shubert, National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC) and Housing Works (2013)
This report provides a review of the literature on the overlapping epidemics of mass incarceration and HIV/AIDS concentrated among poor communities of color, and the role that housing instability plays in exacerbating both. After exploring the interconnectedness of housing status, prevention and treatment of HIV, health outcomes for persons living with HIV/AIDS, and incarceration, this report outlines programmatic, policy, and research recommendations to improve outcomes among ex-offenders. The author also includes an overview of advocacy opportunities through current federal policy initiatives.
