Cookie Johnson and Abbott Bring 'I Stand With Magic: Campaign to End Black AIDS' to Los Angeles to Educate African-American Women on HIV/AIDS
Date:12/1/2007

ww.istandwithmagic.com" target="_new">http://www.istandwithmagic.com. The campaign's emphasis is on African-American and other minority communities where new HIV infections are on the rise. Approximately half of the nearly 40,000 new AIDS diagnoses each year occur among African Americans, who represent just 13 percent of the population. Cumulatively, Los Angeles has had the second highest number of AIDS cases for major cities in the United States.

"When we first learned about Earvin's diagnosis we bonded together as a family to arm ourselves with education on HIV/AIDS," said Cookie. "I was determined that we would fight this disease together as a family. As the newest 'I Stand With Magic' program ambassador, I will encourage women in minority communities in America to get educated, tested and treated for HIV/AIDS throughout the next year. Today, I want to share what we learned about HIV/AIDS with others, especially women who might be going through a similar situation as my own."

HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles

Los Angeles ranked third among cities in the United States for the number of new AIDS cases diagnosed in 2004. Furthermore, Los Angeles had the highest number of AIDS cases in California, more than twice the number of any other county, in 2006. In 2005, 27 percent of AIDS diagnoses in Los Angeles were among African Americans.

HIV/AIDS in the United States

African Americans account for approximately half of the nearly 500,000 Americans estimated to be living with HIV/AIDS and have represented nearly 40 percent of all deaths among people with AIDS in the United States. The rate of AIDS diagnosis for black women is approximately 23 times the rate for white women and four times the rate for Hispanic women. Additionally, black women account for 66 percent of new AIDS cases among women.
