Alabama, South Carolina and Georgia’s Prison systems are being called out for some practices that treat HIV positive prisoners with discrimination. It has been reported that they are forced to wear arm bands and different color inmate suits to make their health status unmistakable. The discriminated prisoners are also forced to miss out on rehabilitation activities that could help them readjust to the real world after release. I think HIV education would greatly affect the way the prison system treats  HIV positive inmates. Everyone should be taught and reminded that male and female condoms are safe and effective at preventing both STD and HIV… and as we all know, safe sex is a great start to preventing discrimination of prisoners!
