A report based on hearings and meetings with consumers, health care practitioners and social service providers about epidemiologic trends, and successful service models for addressing the needs of women at greatest risk of HIV in New York State. The report includes both findings of the Advisory Council's exploration of these issues, and recommendations for further action. As the Council states in its report, "Stigma, discrimination and the lack of coordinated systems of services for women remain the most significant barriers to effective HIV prevention and care for women across New York State."
CHLP fights stigma and discrimination at the intersection of HIV, race, health status, disability, class, sexuality and gender identity and expression, with a focus on criminal and public health systems. As part of this work, we support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change rooted in racial, gender and economic justice. We do this through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources.
