Stop AIDS in Prison Act of 2017
This bill directs the Bureau of Prisons to develop a comprehensive policy to provide HIV testing, treatment, and prevention for federal inmates in prison and upon reentry.
It amends the federal criminal code:
- to require an HIV test for each convicted federal offender sentenced to prison for any length of time regardless of risk factors, unless the individual declines;
- to make the HIV test part of the routine health screening conducted at intake; and
- to require a pre-release HIV test, unless the individual declines.
