We can now envision a post-AIDS world, thanks to dramatic advances in education and increased access to life-sustaining antiretroviral therapy. However, marginalized communities are still being left behind.
“Gap Map” is a new Pulitzer Center visualization that highlights those who are most disproportionately affected by the disease, from transgender sex workers and people who inject drugs to men who have sex with men. The initiative draws on Pulitzer Center reporting in Russia, India and Uganda, amplifying the voices of these marginalized communities and raising awareness about the stigma and discrimination that many face—and that almost always contributes to increased incidence of HIV.
The map is easily shared and fully embeddable. We welcome others to make use of this work—and to let us know where other people are at risk of falling through the gaps.

interesting concepts/styles for the UI. Good stuff to build from

Five years since the end of the Great Recession, the economy has finally regained the nine million jobs it lost. But not all industries recovered equally. Each line below shows how the number of jobs has changed for a particular industry over the past 10 years.
