Women In Peril - HIV & AIDS - The Rising Toll on Women of Color, A Report of the New York State AIDS Advisory Council (2005)

A report based on hearings and meetings with consumers, health care practitioners and social service providers about epidemiological 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."
