California: Forum on HIV/AIDS and African Americans in Riverside County

November 16, 2005

Department of Public Health officials and community organizations in Riverside County are offering a free, public forum about HIV/AIDS and African Americans in the western part of the county. First 5 Riverside's Faith-Based Partnership for Community Change steering committee is hosting the event, which is part of the health department's African Descent AIDS Mobilization -- a program to encourage churches and mosques to urge HIV testing and treatment. While African Americans represent 9 percent of the county's total population, they comprise a disproportionate 17 percent of county HIV/AIDS cases, health officials said in October. Manasseh Nwaigwe, a DPH communicable-diseases specialist, will discuss "HIV/AIDS -- Stop the Silence" at 9:30 a.m., Nov. 30, at First 5 Riverside, 2002 Iowa Ave., Ste. 100.
