HIV Among Hispanics/Latinos in the United States and Dependent Areas, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2014)
Based on 2010 data, this CDC fact sheet outlines the impact of HIV on Latinos in the United States and dependent areas as a percentage of new infections broken down by race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender. According to the CDC, Latinos accounted for over one-fifth of all new HIV infections despite representing about 16% of the total U.S. population. The fact sheet, available in both English and Spanish, also presents brief summaries of prevention challenges in the Latino community and steps the CDC is taking to advance the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and to maximize the effectiveness of current HIV prevention methods.
