About the special issue
HIV/AIDS continues to affect women disproportionately. Some groups of ethnic minority women, in particular African Americans and Latinas, suffer significantly higher rates of HIV infection relative to their populations, while little is known about others such as Asian/Pacific Islander Americans and Native Americans.
This special issue focuses on HIV/AIDS and its effects on ethnic minority women, families, and communities. It is hoped that the articles represented will illuminate issues uniquely relevant to these populations and inform future research, intervention, and policy.
