HIV in Minorities a Cross Cultural Perspective
HIV continues to be a serious threat to the health of minorities. This article from the Division of HIV and AIDS Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control provides a cross-cultural perspective of the incidence of disease in various minority communities, as compared to the population ratios of the groups. Topics covered for each minority group include the number of diagnoses and deaths, prevention challenges specific to each minority community, and what the CDC is doing to combat the challenges. The point is made that although HIV infections are declining overall in the United States, progress remains uneven, particularly with regards to gay and bisexual men. The article concludes with a discussion of the current disease burden and trends by state.
This course is based upon material published by the Centers for Disease Control and is available as an open access article.
