White House Convenes Meeting on Black Men and HIV

The White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) convened a meeting June 2 on the impact of HIV on black men. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 in 16 black men in the United States will become HIV positive in their lifetimes.

ONAP representatives started the meeting with an overview of HIV/AIDS in the black community and among black men. Next, federal officials presented an overview of the federal response to HIV among black men.

The meeting’s second half began with a panel discussion in which members of the media and the HIV/AIDS community addressed the black community’s response to HIV among black men. This was followed by presentations on the latest HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns targeted to black men.

Some of the many issues discussed included: supporting HIV prevention work with black men, understanding how HIV among black men affects black women, increasing federal and local HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns targeting black men, and addressing the role of the black community and society at large in HIV prevention for black men who have sex with men.

This meeting was part of a series of recent discussions hosted by ONAP, which have included HIV among women, youth and other issues.
