Influencing African Americans’ Decision to Provide HIV Care
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), African Americans are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS and account for more HIV/AIDS cases than any other racial/ ethnic group in the U.S. Additionally, it is estimated that 3.8 million African Americans currently uninsured will gain coverage as a result of Medicaid expansion and the creation of Affordable Insurance Exchanges, some of whom will be HIV positive.
The HIV workforce is aging, including the 77.9% of African American providers 35 years of age and older. Identifying motivational factors that drive the HIV workforce is critical to building the next generation of providers, and ensuring that culturally appropriate HIV services are provided to diverse, high-risk populations.
