Feds Spent $3 Million Taxpayer Dollars To Study If Evicted People Have Unsafe Sex

By Adam Andrzejewski for RealClearPolicy

Do not pay your rent, get kicked out of your apartment, and… you risk HIV?

As state and federal eviction policies tied to Covid-19 come close to an end, a new study from Yale University seeks to tie evictions with reckless sexual activities that lead to HIV.

The federal eviction moratorium ends July 31, while some states have their own bans extending beyond that day.

Four researchers from Yale University, one from Drexel University and a sixth from American University recently released a study that found that when a landlord forced tenants to move, the renters were exposed to higher risk of contracting HIV.

The study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, collected data between 2017 and 2018 among 360 low-income people in New Haven, Connecticut, where Yale is located.

It’s part of a several studies being done by the Justice, Housing and Health Study project at the Yale School of Public Health and funded with more than $3 million in grants. 

The researchers found that 77 out of the 360 participants reported a “landlord-related forced move” in the past two years, and that those moves “were associated with higher odds of unprotected sex, concurrent sex, selling sex for money or drugs, exchange of sex for a place to live, and an HIV sexual risk composite.”

“We found robust associations between landlord-related forced moves and HIV sexual risk,” the researchers stated. “Findings suggest that the social and economic consequences of landlord-related forced moves may impact sexual vulnerability.”

Yale enlisted taxpayer help for these ‘studies’ even though the university has $31.2 billion endowment.
