December 1st: World AIDS Day
December 1st is World AIDS Day. What do you know about HIV/AIDS in the Asian American population? Although the rates of HIV/AIDS is low among Asian Americans, according to the U.S Dept. of Health & Human Services Office of Minority Health, "Asian Americans are less likely to have been tested for HIV/AIDS. The total number of reported AIDS cases has generally declined over the past five years for the White population, however it has continued to increase for Asian Americans".
