Though only 17% of the U.S. population, Hispanics/Latinos bear a disproportionate burden of HIV. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2014, Hispanics/Latinos accounted for almost 25% of all estimated new diagnoses of HIV infection in the United States and 6 dependent areas. Stigma, language barriers, and limited access to health care are among the factors that contribute to the burden of HIV in Hispanic/Latino communities.
