Mission Statement

87% of new HIV infections among college students in a recent North Carolina study were Blackâ  87%! HIV/AIDS is devastating Black communities. It is a leading cause of death for African Americans between the ages of 24 and 44. 54% of new HIV infections in the U.S. are African American. 73% of the new HIV cases among women in the U.S. are African American Women (up from 64% a year ago). The mission of the Black AIDS Institute is to turn that around.

Description

The Black AIDS Institute is the only national public policy and research center in the United States focused exclusively on HIV/AIDS among Black people. Our mission is to stop the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Black communities by mobilizing Black institutions and individuals in efforts to confront HIV/AIDS.
