Haciendolo video testimonials
These new Spanish videos from the Doing It campaign showcase various Hispanic/Latino participants who are testing for HIV in order to know their status and stay healthy.

Updated fact sheets:

HIV Among African Americans—This fact sheet provides information and statistics about HIV among African Americans.

HIV Among African American Gay and Bisexual Men—This fact sheet provides information and statistics about HIV among African American gay and bisexual men.

Slide sets:

HIV Surveillance in Urban and Nonurban Areas (through 2015)—This slide set provides updated information on national HIV surveillance in urban and nonurban areas.

HIV Surveillance—Adolescents and Young Adults (through 2015)—This slide set describes the HIV burden among adolescents and young adults. At the end of 2014, 38,356 adolescents and young adults, 13–24 years of age, were living with diagnosed HIV infection in the United States and 6 dependent areas.


Changes in the Disparity of HIV Diagnosis Rates Among Black Women—United States, 2010–2014—This study suggests that the disparity in HIV diagnosis rates for black women, compared to Hispanic/Latina and white women, may be decreasing, a good sign that targeted prevention efforts are working. However, disparities have not disappeared, and black women continue to have a much higher rate of HIV diagnoses than Hispanic/Latina or white women. CDC remains committed to implementing high-impact prevention approaches that can reduce HIV infections among all blacks.

HIV Care Outcomes Among Blacks with Diagnosed HIV—United States, 2014—A second MMWR article highlights the need for strong efforts to improve care outcomes among blacks living with HIV. At the end of 2013, only 49% of blacks living with diagnosed HIV had a suppressed viral load—the lowest proportion for any race/ethnicity in the United States. CDC is working with our partners to increase linkage to and retention in care and viral suppression for blacks living with HIV and to address the social determinants of health, such as poverty and discrimination, which contribute to health disparities.
