HIV Successfully Treated In Prison and Jail

Prisoners with HIV fare well with treatment during incarceration, a Yale study has found. The authors write that, with the lack of accessible community resources, prison can be an "opportunity of last resort" for continuous treatment that can greatly reduce the risk of HIV transmission to others after an inmate’s release. The study appears in JAMA Internal Medicine. Among the authors are CIRA Affiliates Jaimie P. Meyer, M.D. Javier Cepeda, M.P.H., Frederick L. Altice, M.D., M.A. and Sandra A. Springer, M.D.
