The State of AIDS in Black America

The Black AIDS institute has released a report today on the state of AIDS in Black America and what communities are doing to quell the epidemic. According to the report, dubbed “We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For,” more than 50 percent of the people living with HIV/AIDS in 15 states are black.

The Black AIDS Institute has also announced that it will increase efforts to test 1 million African Americans by December 1, 2008.

The report is being lauded by AIDS Action Council, which joins groups such as the Black AIDS Institute, The Balm in Gilead and the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS in a national effort to combat infection among black Americans.

“We have sound evidence-based knowledge of what needs to be done,” says Rebecca Haag, Executive Director of AIDS Action. “We now must mobilize all sectors of our country, including the next president, to act."
