National Survey on HIV in the Black Community (NSHBC) results from the HU CFAR Health Equity Scientific Working Group

December 19, 2016

National Survey on HIV in the Black Community (NSHBC)
The goal of the NSHBC was to develop and administer a survey focused on the cultural, psychosocial, and structural factors that are driving the HIV epidemic amongst Black individuals in the United States. By focusing solely and comprehensively on Black individuals this survey allowed for a more nuanced understanding of the root causes of HIV within our target population. The new knowledge that will be created will better explain persistent disparities in the HIV epidemic in the US and directly inform interventions and policy change.
