New York City: One in 14 Middle-Aged Black Men Have HIV or AIDS

July 13, 2004

New York City black men ages 40 to 54 are almost three times as likely as other city residents to have HIV/AIDS, according to a report from the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene released Monday at the 15th International AIDS Conference in Bangkok. Across the city, one of every 14 middle-age black men are HIV-infected; in Manhattan, the rate is one in seven. According to the report, many middle-age black men are not being tested in the early stages of infection and do not know they need treatment.
