The HIV Policy Lab is a unique collaboration between academic, United Nations and civil society organizations to track and monitor HIV-related laws and policies around the world. The database tracks national policy across 33 different indicators in countries around the world—giving a measure of the policy environment to improve transparency and support reforms. The HIV Policy Lab is a collaboration between Georgetown University and the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, UNAIDS, the Global Network of People Living with HIV and Talus Analytics.
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19), identified in December 2019, has become a major outbreak and has spread rapidly across the world, impacting life and society on all levels. The O'Neill Institute's experts are key resources to the legal and policy approaches to address the pandemic.
Better Meeting the Needs of People Living with HIV Is How to End the HIV Epidemic
This report highlights actions that can be taken by jurisdictions and advocates to improve the health of all people living with HIV. Differing strategies are needed to support three groups of people with HIV: (1) those who are unaware of their infection, (2) those who are in care but not virally suppressed, and (3) those who have been diagnosed but are not in care.
In our current system, jails, prisons, courts and child welfare are often the intervention points for people with substance use disorders. This report provides recommendations for actions that state and local leaders can take immediately to increase evidence-based practices, decrease arbitrary determinations, and prevent overdose deaths.
