Statistics

Not only do Blacks make up almost half of the U.S. HIV population, but they also account for most of the new infections each year. Although race is not a risk factor for HIV infection, a range of issues contributes to the disproportionate HIV risk for Blacks in the United States, including poverty, stigma, higher rates of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), drug use, and poor access to health care.
