We can now envision a post-AIDS world, thanks to dramatic advances in education and increased access to life-sustaining antiretroviral therapy. However, marginalized communities are still being left behind.
“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.
The map is easily shared and fully embeddable. We welcome others to make use of this work—and to let us know where other people are at risk of falling through the gaps.
