In a study of 452 ex-prisoners in England in 1990, 66 people reported that they were tested for HIV antibodies when last in prison.
The circumstances under which many of those who were tested were difficult: 36% found it an unpleasant experience, 17% had not taken the test voluntarily and 55% said they received no counselling.
Further information was gathered about the experiences of those who were HIV positive or assumed to be.
Most were accommodated in a « special location », not allowed to associate with other prisoners and denied access to work or recreational facilities.
These data highlight the difficulties arising from the policy of Viral Infectivity Restrictions, a set of regulations applied to the management of prisoners with HIV in English prisons.
