even die. In addition, any interruption in the provision of HIV/AIDS meds can lead to drug-resistance -- a serious consequence when one has a life-threatening condition."

According to today's Reuters article by Robert MacMillan, "U.S. Care for HIV Detainees Falls Short-Report," (12/7): "The report said without improved standards for medical care, internal oversight and accountability to the public, 'immigrant detainees with HIV/AIDS will continue to needlessly suffer, and in some cases, die in U.S. immigration detention.' The report detailed the treatment of several people who it said either died or became resistant to AIDS drugs and received incomplete dosages. Most were not identified by their full names. A cellmate of Victoria Arellano, a 23-year-old transgender detainee with HIV/AIDS [who was held at a Southern California I.N.S detention facility], said in an interview with Human Rights Watch that after Arellano began to vomit blood, '(she) was told only to take Tylenol and drink large amounts of water ... she died a week later.'"
