A Song of the South: Structural disparities in HIV
Despite overwhelming scientific consensus that disparities in HIV epidemic experienced by Black MSM in the United States are not a result of individual sexual risk behaviors, insufficient attention has been paid to structural solutions. Additionally, even as the HIV epidemic has stabilized nationally, young Black MSM have the highest incidence rate of any U.S. subgroup - especially in the South. We argue for the benefits of a reenvisioned system of engagement that is based upon a holistic continuum of HIV services. We point to exemplars of where current models in which HIV testing, PrEP access, and HIV care fail to meet the needs of Black MSM.
