GAP MAP: LEFT BEHIND IN THE FIGHT AGAINST AIDS
Mapping vulnerable HIV populations
Antiretroviral therapy has saved the lives of over seven million people living with HIV. Yet vulnerable populations still fall through the cracks. Groups like LGBT people, sex workers, and people who inject drugs have limited access to HIV prevention and treatment services. These gaps threaten the gains that have been made in the global fight against AIDS.
“Gap Map” is a new Pulitzer Center visualization that highlights those who are most disproportionately affected by the disease, from transgender sex workers and people who inject drugs to men who have sex with men. The initiative draws on Pulitzer Center reporting in Russia, India and Uganda, amplifying the voices of these marginalized communities and raising awareness about the stigma and discrimination that many face—and that almost always contributes to increased incidence of HIV.
