HIV Transmission Among Black Women Decreasing

Despite the depressing statistics, there’s some good news: Between 2008-2010, HIV transmission rates among Black women went down 21 percent (7,700-6,100). Black women still account for the majority of infections among women, but it’s believed that campaigns on HIV testing and safer sex have made a difference, according to a CDC report.
