HIV in Communities of Color
HIV and AIDS disproportionally impacts racial and ethnic communities in the United States. The Office of Minority Health's Mission is to improve the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of health policies and programs that will eliminate health disparities. Since 1999, the Capacity Building Division has focused its activities on improving the organizational capacity of agencies that provide HIV/AIDS services to these underserved communities.
