Blacks, who make up 14 percent of the population, comprise 44 percent of all new HIV infections, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, the CDC estimates that 1 of every 16 black men and 1 of every 32 black women will be diagnosed with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, at some point in their life.


Blacks also have dramatically higher death rates related to HIV. Black men with HIV and less than a 12th grade education have a death rate of 53 per 100,000 in the general population. For white men with a similar education, that rate is 5 per 100,000 and, for Hispanics, itís 9 per 100,000, according to research published Oct. 8 in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Black women face similar odds. Those with less than a 12th grade education have an HIV-related mortality rate of 27 per 100,000 people in the general population, compared with 2 per 100,000 for white and 3 per 100,000 for Hispanics, the study found.
