  Annotation: This study collected empirical data on ethical challenges in HIV/AIDS research in correctional settings.
Abstract: To explore ethical challenges in the conduct and oversight of HIV/AIDS research in correctional settings, 92 researchers; IRB chairs, members, and prisoner representatives; research ethicists; and prison administrators were asked the question, “If you had to pick the single most important ethical challenge to HIV/AIDS research with incarcerated people, what would it be?” Data were analyzed with NVivo 8.0 software and revealed that key concerns were confidentiality and privacy; autonomy and informed consent; and justice and access. Characteristics of people who are incarcerated, the nature of correctional institutions, and state and federal regulatory issues contributed to these challenges. These findings provide insights into ethical challenges that affect the conduct of HIV/AIDS research in correctional settings. Abstract published by arrangement with Sage Journals.
