Opinion: HIV Prevention and Homeless Youth, Fixing a Catastrophic Failure
"Every month, 1,000 young people in our nation between the ages of 13 and 24 are infected with HIV. A hugely disproportionate number of these new infections are among LGBT youth of color. There is an undeniable correlation between HIV infection rates among youth and poverty. And the failure of HIV prevention efforts to reduce new infections among these youths is undeniably contributed to by a lack of clarity and vision in public policy about how homelessness and poverty force young people into situations where they are at grave risk of infection."
