By: Outskirts Press
In 2008, an estimated 33.4 million people around the world had HIV and AIDS, with 2.7 million newly infected. And while African-Americans comprise only 13% of the U.S. population, they also make up 49% of newly diagnosed cases of HIV in the United States.
The epidemiology of HIV has skyrocketed for African-American adolescents and men—to the tune of 70% of 20,900 new infections—and most efforts to combat HIV/AIDS in America have been unsuccessful in significantly impacting the infection rate among black adolescents and men, thus taking a terrible toll on this segment of the population.
Author Lewis covers:
• How are people protecting their sexual health?
• Do African-Americans trust the medical community?
• Is there a perception of genocide conspiracy?
• Are people misinformed about how HIV is transmitted?
• Is the fear of being labeled homosexual preventing black men from seeking care and screening for HIV status?
AIDS Crises Among African-Americans delves into these issues and offers interesting new perspectives on the missing pieces that may be preventing the epidemiology of HIV for black adolescents and men from decreasing.
