Women constitute roughly one-quarter of new HIV infections in the United States with 66% of these infections occurring among black women, although black women constitute only 14% of the US female population

In the United States, the age-adjusted death rate of black women with HIV is roughly 15 times higher than that observed for HIV-infected white women. HIV infection rates of black women in some U.S. cities are as high as rates in some African countries.
