Government Study: HIV Is Hitting Black Women Hardest

Government Study: HIV Is Hitting Black Women Hardest!!

A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that Black women are diagnosed with HIV at disproportionately high rates relative to White and Hispanic/Latina women.

The report finds that despite recent progress that has seen new HIV diagnoses decrease by 21 percent from 2010 to 2016, Black women still account for 60% of all the new HIV infections among women.

Blacks/African Americans account for a higher proportion of new HIV diagnoses and people living with HIV, compared to other races/ethnicities. In 2017, blacks/African Americans accounted for 13% of the US population but 43% (16,694) of the 38,739 new HIV diagnoses in the United States and dependent areas.

The research explored data concerning HIV that was collected over a seven-year period and used a model to measure the disparity among different groups called the population attributable proportion, or PAP. 

That model found that African American women are hit hardest by HIV as the rate of diagnosis is 15 times as high as that of white women, and almost five time that of Latino women. In fact, HIV/AIDS-related illness is among the leading causes of death for black women ages 25-34, the CDC says.

Seventy-three percent (12,237) of adult and adolescent blacks/African Americans who received an HIV diagnosis were men and 26% (4,397) were women.

And the same study found that more than 90% of Black women are infected by HIV through a male partner.

@1stroke, for real, can't do it, we are he most talented, people on the planet, but can't control ourselves for nothing. People have studied our community and understand that we do not respect ourselves enough to give families a chance to survive so why should they, we are left to our own vices and destroying our own families. I don't know when we will learn, this is not the way to make change and stand up for real Black Power!

The Future the biggest achievement for these females in the community is become a baby mama, they have no shame they love ti brag about it. They have no family values, a ring or marriage, theu dont even care about their own kids, thays why those kids dont have fathers, theu cannot control or raise those bastards now we see how the community is going under with crimes and look at the age brackets, the sad part they are calling on strangers to be their kids male figures, instead of finding their fathers, this is so sad, negros take pride in ignorance, ill be damn to end up with those hoes, once i find out theu have kids im gone, even if o f*** for one night, i keep it moving they are all looking for opportunity in a good man, stay wrap up at all time

This is absolutely nothing new, the government? N**** please black women been the number 1 carriers forever. They don't care nothing about what we as black people go through, we don't even care ourselves why would they? Check the Community out, they sleep with every n**** available, the neighborhood bums, players, weed smoker, drug dealers etc. You name it these dumbass chick are sleeping with them, just stupid, no worth at all.

And if a female is over 35 pushing 4p and still being a dudes baby mama or girl friend, that explains what type of female she is, boy friends are for high school and college girls, your daughter is 17 she has a boy friend, you are 35 you have a boy friend lol and you expect a real man to come take you serious, you have been through so many boy friends you have more miles than a 1985 buick, thats what we call tired p**** and its to tell the type, after a certain age they no longer interested in sex, p**** is tired and done, body is falling apart

I wouldnt be surprise, the only community where popping babies comes first before marriage, they are running around having unprotected sex getting pregnant for dudes they barely, or dudes who have been with every chicks in the neighborhood, those black females only concern about 2 things: a big dick and money they dont care if a man is a good man, they only talk that s*** after they get burn by those bums, its hard to find a wife in the black community unless you are willing to settle for someone who have been passed around by the community or already have kids for other men

9 out of 10 females in the community either have babies, or about to get pregnant for some dummy, every time you turn around they are dragging kids behind them, like evwry man wants to take care of another dudes kids, some of us want to start our family from fresh, the most upsetting part is after they pop those babies they claim they are looking for commitment, they are looking for soul mate, unless you can explain low self esteem and self respect if those females uae protection how come so many of them have kids without fathers? Keep your f****** legs close or uae protection you are destroying the community in every way, and stop sounding retarded making excuses blaming those men you already know about, you control who you have sex with and when how come you cannot control when not to get pregnant?

:-(  Please ladies...if you do plan to lay down with someone, you should know them well enough to say "Hey, before we do this, let's get tested". My girlfriend would alway made sure she and the guy she was with got tested before they did anything. I believe there are still free clinics in 45's world.
