Women & HIV Back grey_arrow_rt.gif
AIDS is the leading cause of death among African American and Hispanic women ages 25-44 in the US. African American and Hispanic women accounted for 76% of new AIDS cases among women reported in 1996 in the US. Women are one of the fastest growing groups of new AIDS cases, accounting for 20% of newly reported cases in the US and 42% of new cases worldwide. In clinical research on potential treatments, only 12% of research participants are female. Women are 33% more likely to die than men because treatment begins so much later, if at all.
