HIV/AIDS in the South and Challenges in Other Non-Metropolitan Areas in the U.S.
Original Broadcast: January 27, 2006
The Southern States Manifesto, HIV/AIDS & STDs in the South was released in March of 2002. The report brought national attention to the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS and STDs across southern communities and localities. The disparities include higher than national averages of disease rates, disproportionate disease rates among persons of color, and inadequate resources to respond to the crisis. Nearly four years later as the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the South continues to grow and as the Ryan White C.A.R.E. Act Languishes in Congress, the Southern AIDS Coalition, in partnership with the Alabama Department of Public Health hosted this program to highlight concerns and to discuss solutions.
