The HIV/AIDS Epidemic in the African American Community: Where Do We Go from Here?
The chapters in this book review several contextual factors affecting the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the African American community. These chapters also present reviews of interventions designed to reduce behavioral risk among subpopulations most at risk for HIV acquisition and transmission. With some notable exceptions (male-to-female transgender persons, American Indians, and monolingual Asians), behavioral interventions for the most at-risk groups are available through the Diffusion of Effective Behavioral Interventions (DEBI) (Lyles, Crepaz, Herbst, & Kay, 2006). Further, a process for adapting these interventions for different populations has also been developed (McKleroy et al., 2006).
