CDC MMWR Examines Racial, Ethnic Disparities in HIV/AIDS Diagnoses

February 10, 2006

  • "Racial/Ethnic Disparities in Diagnoses of HIV/AIDS," Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report: The report examines racial and ethnic disparities in diagnoses of HIV/AIDS from 2001 to 2004, using cases reported to CDC by 33 states via a confidential names-based reporting system. According to the report, of the estimated 157,252 HIV cases diagnosed during that period, the number of cases and rate of diagnoses were higher among blacks than all other racial or ethnic groups combined. The report calls for a comprehensive national program to address the "substantial" racial disparities in HIV/AIDS diagnoses in the U.S. and says that partnerships must be improved among governmental agencies, community- and faith-based organizations and the public to reduce such disparities (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, 2/10).
