    The Magnitude of the Impact of HIV on the Human Beings in the World’s Richest Country, America: The Misery of African Americans

     Muse Abdi (corresponding) (2021)
    Disproportionate rates of HIV infection among African Americans is an increasing concern in the United States. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of HIV prevention programs on African Americans and social determinants fueling HIV-related risk behaviors. Using literature, this study analyzed the incidences of HIV infection among African Americans in the United States and the effectiveness of the prevention programs. African Americans struggle with mass incarceration, drugs, stigma, criminalization, and lack of economic opportunities, which contribute to the HIV-related risk behaviors. The existing traditional prevention programs in place are not working for African Americans. Tailored and culturally relevant programs should be designed and implemented. Further studies are needed to establish the causal relationships and develop preventive measures.

      Review text

      This article is worth publishing because author discusses a very important topic. HIV infection disproportionally impacts African Americans because of discrimination, stigma, poverty, and other important reasons discussed in this article. In order to lower the rate of HIV infection among African Americans it is important to apply political, social and health policies that will fight social problems associated with HIV infection. Culturally appropriate programs and technology-based preventions show promising results and are discussed in details in this article.
