HIV in the USA: The Lancet Special Edition

Mar 04, 2021

The Lancet journal in February 2021 published a special edition on HIV in the USA.

From the editors: “Surveying the ongoing challenges to ending the HIV epidemic in the USA, a six-paper Series published in The Lancet underscores pronounced racial, sexual, and gender disparities; substantial gaps in domestic programme funding; and due to geography and the patchwork health-care system, limited access to HIV treatment and prevention services. The USA continues to lag behind other G-7 nations when it comes to controlling its HIV epidemic and is the only high-income country among the top 10 countries most affected by HIV. The Series highlights that the majority of HIV infections are now concentrated in the South and rural areas, where women and minorities are disproportionately affected, and where similar disparities emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic. With recommendations for elevating awareness and better reaching underserved populations as well as funding and outreach reform, the Series presents a path towards eliminating HIV in the USA.”

The articles listed in this edition discuss the epidemiology of HIV in the USA, HIV and women, HIV and men who have sex with men, insurance coverage and the HIV financing landscape, HIV and the opioid crisis, and a call to action for achieving the US Ending the HIV Epidemic.

Read the articles at The Lancet.
