•   Overall, even though African Americans make up only approximately 13%
    of the US population, one half of the estimated new numbers of HIV/AIDS
    diagnoses in the United States in 2004 were for African Americans [1].*
•   AIDS has become a leading cause of death for African Americans. In 2002
    (the most recent year for which data are available), HIV/AIDS was the
    second leading cause of death for all African Americans aged 35–44 [2]. In
    the same year, HIV/AIDS was the number 1 cause of death for African
    American women aged 25–34 [2].
•   Of the almost 1 million cases of AIDS diagnosed in the United States 40%
    were in African Americans [1].
•   Of the more than half a million people with AIDS who have died, 38% were
    African Americans [1].
•   It is not an exaggeration to say that HIV/AIDS is an epidemic in the African
    American community.
•   African Americans have accounted for 40% of AIDS diagnoses since the
    beginning of the epidemic [1].
•   African Americans do not live as long as people in other racial or ethnic
    groups who have AIDS [1].
•   In 2004,more African American children (under the age of 13) were living
    with AIDS than were children of all other races and ethnicities living with
    AIDS combined [1].
