About this Series

Physical, biological, economic, and cultural factors conspire to simultaneously increase the incidence of infection and delay diagnosis in HIV-infected women in southern states. Barriers to care include financial hardship, limited transportation in rural settings, a dearth of childcare options, social stigma, intimate partner violence, mental health issues, substance abuse, and inaccurate perception of risk.

Infectious disease experts at Emory University's clinic seek to disrupt these barriers with their unique approach to serving this often overlooked HIV-infected population. Emory is also a research site for the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS), in which investigators study the specific needs of HIV-infected women.
