Disproportionate HIV Care

JAMA. 2016;315(12):1221. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.2367

More HIV infections were diagnosed among black teens and adults in 2010 than in other racial and ethnic groups, yet black patients were the least likely to have received ongoing HIV care over the next 3 years, according to a new study.

Using National HIV Surveillance System data from the District of Columbia and 11 Midwestern and East Coast states, CDC researchers examined patterns of consistent HIV care from 2011 through 2013 among people 13 years or older who were diagnosed in 2010 (Dasgupta S et al. MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2016;65[4]:77-82).
