Prisons

HIV/AIDS in Prison: Crisis of the Confined: "According to CDC report authored by Dr. Robert Greifinger, formally the Department of Correction's chief medical officer, and cited by Fox Butterfield in a New York Times article ["Infections in Newly Released Inmates Are Rising Concern" dated January 28, 2003], an inordinate number of inmates are leaving prison with one infectious disease or another. In 1996 alone, 1.3 million releasees had hepatitis C; 155,000 had hepatitis B; 12,000 had tuberculosis; 98,000 had HIV; and 39,000 had AIDS. Presumably, the numbers for 2003 are considerably higher..." - HIV Transmission and Prevention in Prisons. - Few Men Found to Get HIV in Prison: "About 90 percent of HIV-positive men in Georgia's prison system -- the nation's fifth largest -- were infected before they arrived, the study found. Over a 17-year period, 88 men became infected in prison by the virus that causes AIDS, chiefly through same-sex intercourse. Georgia prisons currently house about 45,000 men..." - HIV/AIDS in Prison: Crisis of the Confined.

HIV/AIDS and Men in Prison (Canada): "There are several risk behaviours that men are exposed to while in prison: unprotected sex; tattooing; and sharing needles and other drug equipment. Methadone treatment should be available in all prisons. Prevention tools (such as condoms and clean needles) and educational HIV/AIDS material must be made available to all inmates in a discreet manner. - HIV/AIDS in the Male-To-Female Transsexual and Trangendered Prison Population: A Comprehensice Strategy (Canada: PDF Download).

"Certain prisoners are targeted for sexual exploitation the moment they enter a penal facility: their age, looks, sexual orientation, and other characteristics mark them as candidates for abuse. Human Rights Watch's  research revealed a broad range of factors that correlate with increased vulnerability to rape. These include youth, small size, and physical weakness; being white, gay, or a first offender; possessing "feminine"  characteristics such as long hair or a high voice; being unassertive, unaggressive, shy, intellectual, not street-smart, or "passive"; or having been convicted of a sexual offense against a minor." - HIV in Prisons is 5 Times the Rate of General Population (PDF Download).

Sex, Sexual Violence and Coercion in Men's Prisons (South Africa: Paper presented at the 2001 "AIDS in Context" International Conference. "Members occupy a position either in the hierarchy of the Private-Line or the Blood-Line. The specified role of the Blood Line members is to commit violence, and to protect the camp and their 'wives' while the Private Line positions are distinctly feminised. This is especially the case for those situated at the lower rungs of the private line hierarchy. Members in these positions are known as 'wyfies' and must provide sex and domestic services to the fighters... The little available information on how the career path of a new recruit in the 28s is established, in particular, the gendered and sexual role of 'wyfie', suggests that physical attributes and age play a role. A young man with feminine qualities will likely be regarded as a potential 'wyfie'." 

Jail and HIV Risk: (Women) "What makes a person likely to acquire HIV? Serving time in prison is one risk factor among many. The Bureau of Justice reported in 2003 that the rate of confirmed AIDS cases was more than three times higher among the prison population than in the United States overall. But that’s not to say that prison time is the cause; it’s much more complicated than that..."

But the fear of being found out, where everyone knows who you are, and there's nowhere to hide, adds stress to the lives of rural people living secretly with HIV. Meanwhile, the need to hide adds a false sense of invulnerability to the rest of the local population, who don't realize that HIV exists in their community."

What are rural HIV prevention needs? - Lesbian and Bisexual Women in Small Cities—At Risk for HIV? - AIDS Lifeline at Risk; Funding Shift to Rural Areas Will Hurt New Jersey Agencies: "Changes Congress made in December to the Ryan White Care Act, the main source of federal HIV/AIDS funding, will cause Bergen and Passaic counties to lose some 41 percent of their funding, say local advocates. The cut, from $3.6 million to $2.1 million this year, will affect 20 local agencies that served 2,000 HIV/AIDS patients last year. Congress added five metropolitan areas to those receiving Ryan White funding. The intent was to shift more money to rural communities affected by HIV/AIDS. But more communities are drawing on the funds, which remained basically unchanged. - Increased Ryan White CARE Act Funding to Rural Areas Should Not Come at Expense of Urban Areas, Editorial Says.

Gay Men's HIV Prevention Strategy: Environmental Scan for Rural Southwestern Ontario Elgin-Huron-Lambton-Middlesex-Oxford-Perth (AIDS Committe of London, 2006: PDF Download): "Theoretically, this environmental scan intended to investigate the potential need to expand services to rural locations considering several local statistics: Gay men and MSM account for 69% of all HIV diagnoses in Ontario, 73% of diagnoses in London-Middlesex, and 92% in Oxford County (Remis et al, 2004). Ontario: 690 new MSM infections in 2003 (Remis et al, 2004). Estimated prevalence rate amongst MSM in southwestern Ontario is 13.4%, after Toronto (19%) and Ottawa (18%) (Remis et al, 2004). 2003: MSM account for 41% of all HIV diagnoses in southwestern Ontario (Remis et al, 2004). In addition to these statistics, results from the Ontario Men’s Survey of 2002 indicated that of the positive test samples, prevalence was 12.7% in Toronto, 7.7% in Southern Ontario, 4.9% in Ottawa and 3.7% in Northern Ontario (HIV/AIDS Epi Update, 2005). This project reviewed existing support, social groups or community services and programs that exist to serve MSM in the rural counties that surround London. Contact was made through public health nurses, county health services, community centres, public secondary schools, organizations, and counsellors. The research revealed there is an extremely limited amount of services offered to the MSM populations..." - Al McNutt: Fighting HIV/AIDS in small-town Canada: Truro man receives award for courageous AIDS and human rights efforts. - Rural Women and HIV/AIDS Information Exchange in Canada. - Rural Newfoundland no longer Canada’s “AIDS capital” (PDF Download).

Young Gay Men and HIV/AIDS: "For rural and isolated young gay men, getting information on safer sex is often their most pressing issue. Services are often severely lacking or non-existent in their communities. Where they exist, youth serving agencies, local lesbigay organizations and local AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) can be good resources for this group. These services are often more effective when partnerships are developed in order to best assess and address the needs of lesbigay youth in their region. It is important for these agencies/organizations to reach out specifically to young gay men... For rural youth and youth in smaller communities it is important to recognize the fear of disclosure of one's sexuality. This information can make life in smaller communities difficult or impossible for some young gay men. Access to testing, counselling and AIDS education may involve such obstacles as (potentially costly) travel and unexplained absences from home." - Gay Men With AIDS in Rural America.

HIV/AIDS Among American Indians and Alaskan Natives - United States, 1981-1997: "Compared with all persons who have AIDS, a lower proportion of AI/ANs resided in metropolitan areas with populations greater than 1,000,000 (56% versus 77%, respectively), and a higher proportion resided in rural areas with populations less than 50,000 (19% versus 6%, respectively)... Editorial Note: The incidence of AIDS among AI/ANs increased through the early 1990s and leveled off during 1995-1996. Compared with all persons with AIDS in the United States, AIDS among AI/ANs was geographically clustered in selected areas in the West and in smaller cities and rural areas. - American Indians and Alaska Natives and HIV/AIDS in the United States: "Most Indian Health Service (IHS) providers live near tribal lands in rural areas; however, 62 percent of AI/ANs do not live in those areas. Frequent travel to visit family and friends and to participate in ceremonies and religious events can further complicate consistent adherence and access to health care." - Almost Half of Rural Indian Women Have Not Heard of HIV/AIDS, Report Says.

HIV: A Gift Not Worth Giving: "Although Otani has only been asked three times to be a gift giver online, his positive status profile on gay.com has filled his inbox with strange requests to send his semen in containers or used condoms from other gay.com members... "This is something that's underground. You wouldn't be able to find one person who is an actual gift giver or bug chaser willing to admit that they do these things, especially the ones who intentionally infect their partners without telling them about their positive status," says Harb. He explains that gift givers are usually angry about contracting the virus from another sexual partner, and that bug chasers are even more complex, and possibly dealing with the social pressure of being gay."

Do some gay men want to contract HIV? Researchers grapple with bug chasing: "He said a gay young man today has a 50 per cent chance of being HIV positive by the time he reaches his late 40s. "If there are people who are so impacted psychologically, emotionally by the existence of HIV in their communities that they feel they would be better off to become (infected) and just have it done with, then that's a significant issue that needs to be addressed." Michael Graydon, a researcher at Carleton University in Ottawa, studied the bug chasers and gift givers via online newsgroups for his master's thesis which he presented to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta in 2004. "Sometimes it was described as the gift of death," Graydon said in a recent interview. "Other times, it was described as the gift of the positive brotherhood." He said one gay man told him he wanted to contract the virus sooner rather than later so "he could feel more like a gay man, which to me, kind of summed up everything. "These are guys that are the products of a virulently homophobic culture, who've been viciously stigmatized because of HIV for 25 years. They believe being gay means death. Being gay means getting AIDS. Being gay means dying early. This is what's supposed to happen."

Continuing HIV Epidemic / AIDS related Drugs / Vaccine

The continuing HIV epidemic among men who have sex with men. "A probability sample of MSM was obtained in 1997 (n = 2881; 18 years and older) from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco, and HIV status was determined through self-report and biological measures... HIV prevalence was 17% (95%  confidence interval = 15%, 19%) overall, with extremely high levels in African Americans (29%), MSM who used injection drugs (40%), "ultraheavy" noninjection drug users (32%), and less educated men (< high school, 37%)." - A Call for Change: Rethinking HIV Prevention Education Approaches in Toronto's Gay Community (1994). - Negotiating 'Open Space': The importance of cultural context in HIV/AIDS communication models (Word 97 Download N/A) (Abstract). - HIV men 'having unsafe gay sex: More than one in three gay men with HIV have unprotected sex, a survey says... "The rate of HIV infection was highest in Brighton, at almost 14%, and lowest in Manchester, at 8.6%. Across the entire sample, one in three men who was HIV positive did not know they had the infection - a figure which tallies with previous research."

HIV rates skyrocketing among men who have sex with men: Studies have found that infection rates are growing among men who have sex with men in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and less than 5 percent of those men have access to HIV-related health care, according to a statistics released by the American Foundation for AIDS Research, or amfAR. - Emerging and Re-Emerging HIV Epidemics among Gay and non-Gay Identified MSM: PowerPoint Presentation Downloads Available.

Reconceptualising behaviour change in the HIV/AIDS context (PDF Download, Download Page): "In this chapter the authors look closely and critically at the concept of ‘behaviour change’, a concept which has been much used in programmes designed to reduce HIV transmission. It is argued that approaches to behaviour change are for the most part based on cognitive models of action and it is suggested that this is a problematic foundation for developing programmes of behaviour change, and particularly HIV/AIDS intervention programmes. Models of behaviour change often do not address the contingencies which bring intentions to fruition."

The researchers found that 13 men (about 16%) had HIV strains that were resistant to at least one of the antiretroviral drugs commonly used as part of combination treatment regimens." - Drug-Resistant HIV Strain on the Rise: "Two recent medical studies indicate that between 4 and 5 percent of newly diagnosed patients with HIV are infected with highly drug-resistant strains of the virus believed to cause AIDS." - Recent Transmission of HIV Drug Resistance Increases in 8 Cities in the US and Canada.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

  The development of these GLBT information web pages were made possible through the collaboration of Richard Ramsay (Professor, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary) and Pierre Tremblay (independent researcher, writer, and GLBT children and youth advocate) who both recognize that often needed social changes occur as the result of knowledge availability and dissemination. Additional Information at: Warning, Acknowledgments, Authors.

These GLBTQ Info-Pages were located at the University of Southampton from 2000 to 2003, this being the result of a collaboration with Dr. Chris Bagley, Department of Social Work Studies, University of Southampton.

Graphics are compliments of Websight West. The Synergy Centre donated computer/Internet time to facilitate the construction of this GLBT information site. Both are owned by a Chris Hooymans, a friend, and former publisher of a gay & lesbian magazine in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Chris continues to offer his expertise whenever needed and he has supplied, free of charge, the hosting of the site - Youth Suicide Problems: A Gay / Bisexual Male Focus - where a smaller - GLBTQ Education Section - and the Internet Resource Page for this subject (http://www.youth-suicide.com/gay-bisexual/links6a.htm) is located.

Computer time was also supplied by Rick Reist & Glenn Lynas, and Glenn also supplied other forms of assistance.

Many thanks to Wendy Stephens from The Department of Communications Media, University of Calgary.  She communicated with publishers of many academic journals (an ongoing time-consuming process) for permission to reproduce abstracts from papers and studies on these GLBT information web pages.
