House of Representatives Passes Stop AIDS in Prison Act of 2007
Date:9/25/2007

Calls on Senate to Introduce and Pass an Identical Bill

WASHINGTON, Sep. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIDS Action Council applauds the House of Representatives for passing H.R. 1943, The Stop AIDS in Prison Act of 2007 earlier today. The bill filed by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) in April would provide routine non-mandatory (opt out) HIV counseling and testing at entry and release from federal prisons and allow inmates to request an HIV test while ensuring that they would not be penalized by prison officials for making that request. The bipartisan bill passed unanimously out of the House Judiciary Committee in late July. AIDS Action supports the Stop AIDS in Prison Act of 2007 and calls on the Senate to introduce and pass an identical bill.

"Passage of this bill recognizes the need to provide counseling, testing and treatment of HIV positive federal prisoners and is a first step towards recognizing the public health threat that HIV poses throughout the criminal justice system," said Rebecca Haag, Executive Director, AIDS Action Council. "The opt-out testing procedures for people who are incarcerated in the federal prison system will help us to ensure that the rights of prisoners are protected while at the same time helping to ensure that they can get tested and receive the counseling and HIV treatment and care that they need. This bill will accomplish that delicate balance," she added.

AIDS Action continues to work with legislators to prioritize the needs of people living with HIV by making life-saving drugs, medical treatment, and essential support services available to all who are HIV positive, and to highlight the importance of HIV prev
