Examination of Inequalities in HIV/AIDS Mortality in the United States From a Fundamental Cause Perspective
June 21, 2010
In the current study, the researchers assessed changes in socioeconomic status (SES) and black and white inequalities in HIV/AIDS mortality prior to and after the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Taking a fundamental cause perspective, they used negative binomial regression to analyze trends in county-level gender-, race-, and age-specific HIV/AIDS mortality rates of persons ages 15 to 64. The study period was 1987 to 2005.
