Over half of people living with HIV in the U.S. are estimated to be out of care, and studies show these statistics may be even worse for women living with HIV. Research published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that race, gender, and geography play a key role in health outcomes for people living with HIV — women are getting sicker and dying faster of HIV, especially Black women and Latinx, and particularly if they are living in the South or rural areas. Women’s medical care and support service needs are unique. Achieving the best health outcomes for women living with HIV requires care that is non-stigmatizing, holistic, integrated, gender-sensitive, peer-based, culturally relevant and that upholds positive women’s rights and dignity.
