Factors Associated With HIV-transmission in Black and Latina Women


Black women are 15 times more likely and Latinas are 4 times more likely to to contract HIV than White women. Studies of HIV in women have evaluated suspected risk factors in uninfected women. Few assessed a matched sample of HIV-positive and negative women to discern which factors actually increase the odds of infection. Furthermore, there are multiple determinants of HIV-seroconversion. This study compared HIV-infected and uninfected Black and Hispanic women on hypothesized risk factors.
