Michigan: Black AIDS Campaign Starts

February 6, 2006

Michigan is staging a six-week effort to highlight HIV/AIDS' disproportionate impact on the African-American community. Running through March, the initiative will include scores of events in 17 Michigan cities. In Detroit, campaign activities are scheduled at the Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Prevention, Marygrove College and elsewhere. Several black churches have signed on to take part in the National Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS, March 5-11. Black people make up 14 percent of Michigan's population but 58 percent of its HIV/AIDS cases.
