Racial Disparities in HIV Infection in the USA

Here is a recent article that speaks volumes and accurately reflects my day to day observations in the HIV clinic. There is a growing disparity in the rate of HIV/AIDS diagnoses in young men, particularly young, black men ages 15-24. 

This is a sad and disturbing trend, particularly as risk reduction interventions, HIV testing and treatment are all more accessible than ever.
Our ongoing efforts to reduce the incidence and burden of HIV must be focused and prioritized for this high risk group.
