COVID-19 & HIV

DRC team pens report on the impacts of COVID-19 on Delawareans living with HIV

COVID-19 has generated tremendous hardship for Delawareans. In March 2021, DRC released a report examining the social and community impacts of COVID-19 on Delawareans living with HIV. DRC director Tricia Wachtendorf, along with DRC-affiliated doctoral students Christopher Tharp (political science) and Nancy Rios-Contreras (criminology) conducted 55 in-depth interviews in early 2021. Although an independent study, the team partnered with the Delaware HIV Consortium to recruit participants. The study focused on those Delawareans living with HIV who are in greatest need of economic and health care assistance - those receiving benefits from Ryan White Program care providers. Although more extensive analysis is underway, a preliminary report of their findings can be found here.
