Signs of progress, but the crisis persists

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

This National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (observed Saturday, February 7), there are encouraging signs that we are making progress in the fight against HIV among African Americans – but HIV remains a serious health crisis in the black community.
New data released today show that death rates among blacks with HIV declined 28 percent from 2008 to 2012 and nearly half of people reached by CDC’s testing programs in 2013 were black. However, more than a third of people living with HIV in the United States are black, and far too many African Americans with HIV do not get the medical care and treatment they need.
