Stateside's conversation with Jallicia Jolly

  • Treatment options for HIV have advanced by leaps and bounds since the AIDS crisis started nearly four decades ago. But these advancements aren’t equally available to all people. While African-American heterosexual women have the highest HIV rates of any ethnicity, they are significantly less likely to get adequate care.
  • Stateside speaks with Jallicia Jolly, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of American Culture at the University of Michigan, about her research on how HIV-positive black women in Detroit and beyond are connecting and advocating for more resources.
