This information sheet discusses the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS among U.S. Latinos, and explains that the epidemic has had a disproportionate impact on Latino young adults. Latinos account for 21 percent of new HIV infections, 19 percent of people living with HIV disease in 2010, and 21 percent of new AIDS diagnoses in 2011. It provides statistics to show key trends and current cases among Latinos in general, as well as among women and young people. The information sheet describes methods of transmission among Latino men and women; geographical distribution of AIDS cases among Latinos; and their access to and use of the health care system, including health insurance, HIV testing, and Latinos' concerns about HIV/AIDS.
