Safe house protection for male adolescents living with HIV/AIDS-defining infections & diseases (also at-risk for psychological, neurological, and developmental challenges due to sexual abuse, gang violence, addiction, human trafficking, and cyclical prostitution).
Physicians should be familiar with mandatory reporting requirements within the jurisdictions in which they practice… Physicians have a duty to disobey laws they believe are ethically wrong, and to follow their conscience (Geiderman, 2012).
Why has public health failed.
You have failed because you have failed. If only a minority of people with HIV can stay in primary care, you have failed. It is your public health system. It is your failure.
“But the patient is not being cooperative.”
Are you looking for the hard to reach or for cooperation. Decide. You can’t have both. It isn’t possible. Get over it.
We could never afford the drugs. Where has public health been advocating for us. We are poor. We have no money. What has public health done at the doors of Big Pharma. In a word, nothing.
When public health tells us everyone can be treated we do not believe you. We KNOW people who are on waiting lists. We think you want to track us, use us and abuse us simply because everyone does and that is our experience.

So you have a LONG way to go to reach young boys doing sex work and the statistics bear that out. The video we have posted here will make you uncomfortable even if it is only two seconds long.
It portrays a kind of bondage that can be inherent to sex work, and it portrays the kind of relationship we understand we would have with public health.
Personally, I have no faith in you whatsoever. Show me the money.
