The 2009 Survey of Americans on HIV/AIDS: Implications for the Domestic HIV/AIDS Crisis
Date:4/23/2009

DC Briefing to Release Poll About Americans' Attitudes, Knowledge, and Experiences

WASHINGTON, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, April 28, the Kaiser Family Foundation is hosting a briefing to release the 2009 Survey of Americans on HIV/AIDS. The new survey of the American public is the seventh major survey conducted by the Foundation on the issue since 1995. As Foundation President Drew Altman noted in his recent Pulling It Together column on the Foundation's website, the survey finds that the public's attention to and sense of urgency about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the U.S. has fallen considerably, with the share naming HIV/AIDS as the nation's most urgent health problem down precipitously since 1995, and the share saying they have heard a lot about HIV/AIDS in the U.S. now less than half of what it was five years ago.

What is the public's appetite for federal spending on HIV/AIDS? Do they think progress has been made on the disease? What are people's personal experiences with HIV/AIDS? What do the survey findings tell us about HIV-related stigma? How do experiences with and attitudes towards HIV/AIDS differ among groups that have been harder-hit by the epidemic, such as African Americans, Latinos, and young adults? What is the public's sense of personal risk? What are the trend data on HIV testing? These questions and many others will be addressed in the presentation and discussion of the survey findings. Kaiser researchers who conducted the survey will be joined by two distinguished panelists: Jeff Crowley, Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy, from The White House and Brenda Wilson, Science and Health Correspondent and Editor, from National Public Radio.

Tuesday, April 28, Barbara Jordan Conference Center, 1330 G Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
