Abstract

Discrimination in healthcare settings is a barrier to healthcare engagement. We analyzed two nationally representative datasets to assess change in discrimination in healthcare settings reported by HIV patients from 1996 to 2011–2013. Perceived discrimination in healthcare settings significantly decreased over time, from 24% in 1996 to 15% in 2011–2013. Improvements over time in HIV clinicians’ engagement in prevention discussions with patients following federal agencies’ recommendations may have been a contributing factor.
