ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the state of the AIDS epidemic in the United States. The author points out that 25 years after the detection of HIV/AIDS, the U.S. has a long way to containing the virus, and that there are more aggressive campaigns in Africa. In America, the disease has reached epidemic proportions among African Americans. Though they account for 13% of the population, blacks accounted for 50% of Americans diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.
