Video: National Minority Quality Forum Launches First U.S. HIV/AIDS Atlas
Date:6/22/2009

s

HIV/AIDS is a serious public health threat in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 1.1 million people are living with HIV in the U.S., and data released last year show that the annual number of new HIV infections is approximately 40 percent higher than previously estimated, with more than 56,000 infections occurring each year. In an effort to prevent new HIV cases and allow for timely initiation of therapy among those living with the disease, CDC issued new guidelines for HIV screening in 2006, which recommend that HIV tests be a routine part of medical care for all persons ages 13 to 64. Earlier this year, the White House and CDC launched a landmark five-year HIV/AIDS public-awareness campaign, "Act Against AIDS," which will provide information about testing and prevention. It is the first campaign of its kind in more than a decade.

About the National Minority Quality Forum

The National Minority Quality Forum (http://www.nmqf.org) was founded in 1998 as a nonprofit organization. Its mission is to strengthen national and local efforts to eliminate the disproportionate burden of premature death and preventable illness in racial and ethnic minorities and other special populations through the use of evidence-based, data-driven initiatives, including a series of health atlases like the HIV/AIDS Atlas (http://www.MapHIV.org).
