Black AIDS Institute Executive Director Discusses HIV/AIDS Among Black Community

August 3, 2009

PRI's "Tavis Smiley Show" recently conducted an interview with Phill Wilson, executive director of the Black AIDS Institute, where he discussed HIV/AIDS among the black community, findings from the organization's recent "Passing the Test" report and its "Test One Million" campaign, the role of the media in HIV/AIDS efforts and other issues. Wilson said he believes an absence of media coverage on HIV/AIDS contributes to the lack of awareness among the community, noting figures from the organization's report that found that many blacks are not getting tested or seeking treatment for HIV. In addition, Wilson addressed the role of black leaders, saying, "I'm really, really happy to say that our black leaders are really starting to respond in a big way" (Smiley, 7/31).
