Molecular HIV Surveillance

The widespread implementation of molecular viral surveillance technologies and a lack of community consultation about potential risks has fueled concerns among advocates. In addition, this technology has fueled vigorous conversation among advocates about whether these new technologies offer benefits that are worth the potential incursions. These include concerns regarding patient privacy, the collateral legal consequences arising from HIV stigma and criminalization, and the investment of resources that might be used more efficiently to accomplish the same goals. AIDS United's Public Policy Council formed an ad-hoc committee to explore the issue of molecular HIV surveillance and has offered the following recommendations to federal, state and local public health entities on the practice, outlined in the position statement below.
