Corrections and HIV/AIDS

The AIDS Institute's Criminal Justice Initiative (CJI) was developed in response to the emerging prevention and service needs of HIV infected and at-risk detainees, inmates and ex-offenders in New York State. Its goal is to provide a comprehensive, seamless continuum of quality HIV prevention and supportive services to individuals in a correctional setting and ex-offenders returning to their home communities. These services are designed to diminish HIV transmission and improve the health and well-being of individuals living with HIV/AIDS. The CJI uses multiple strategies to ensure effective service delivery.
