Updated Fact Sheet: HIV Infection Among Asians in the United States and Dependent AreasDespite growth of the Asian population in the United States, the number of HIV diagnoses among Asians has remained stable and the rate of new infections has decreased. This fact sheets provides an overview of how HIV affects the Asian population in the U.S.
Updated Fact Sheet: HIV Among Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders in the United StatesGenerally, the effect of HIV infection on NHOPI is proportional to their US population size. However, certain data on diagnoses indicate a disproportionate impact in this population group relative to other races/ethnicities.
