Redefining HIVAIDS for Latinos

Research Report

Within the context of the changing demographics of HIVAIDS among Latinos and an evolving national strategy to address the disease, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) conducted an extensive qualitative needs assessment of HIV-positive and high-risk Latinos at 14 sites in the U.S., including Puerto Rico. This white paper combines findings from the NCLR Latino Families HIVAIDS Needs Assessment, academic research presented during the Latinas and HIVAIDS Summit in 2005, findings from the working groups at the Summit, and a review of the existing literature to outline a proposed new strategy designed to reduce the incidence and improve treatment of HIVAIDS in the Latino community.
