As the HIV epidemic has changed nationally, the parallel change in the Southern states has been a disproportionate increase in HIV infection among people of color and among women. Due to the limited and disjointed health care and social service resources in rural Southern regions, already marginalized groups have difficulty in accessing appropriate care and services to address their HIV infection seamlessly and with continuity.
