Social researchers and epidemiologists, as well as their major institutions and the general public, have been slow to address the racial and ethnic aspects of the AIDS epidemic. Whether measured by categories associated with major routes of infection, age level, gender, or by diminished length of survival, blacks and Hispanics are disproportionately affected by AIDS. Education, care, and outreach efforts based upon stereotypes of gay white males will have to yield to greater attention to cultural differences-and potential strengths-within each of the special “communities at risk.” Evidence indicates areas of social resistance along with unique possibilities for change.
