Abstract

Latinos in the United States have been disproportionately affected by HIV, with a higher rate of infection, later diagnosis, and a higher death rate than Caucasians. Complicating the issue is that "Latino" is a broad term that encompasses diverse ethnic and racial groups, requiring a targeted approach to prevention and management of HIV infection. This article explores the demographics of HIV infection among Latinos in the United States, discusses cultural beliefs among Latinos that have an impact on prevention and access to care, and reviews strategies for managing HIV infection in this population.
