High prevalence of HIV

African Americans of all ages face a higher risk of being exposed to infection with each sexual encounter than do other racial/ethnic groups. This is because the burden of HIV is greater in African American communities than any other racial/ethinic groups, and because African Americans are likely to have sexual relations with other African Americans.Therefore, even with levels of individual risk behaviors (e.g. Unprotected sex, multiple partners) that are comparable to other ethnicities, African Americans face a higher risk of infection.
