About The Black Church & HIV: The Social Justice Imperative

In the U.S., the Black community bears the greatest burden of the HIV epidemic, more than any other racial or ethnic group. While African Americans represented just 13% of the total population in 2017, they accounted for 42% of all people living with HIV and 44% of all new diagnoses. To address the urgent need for action, The Black Church & HIV initiative was established to form a national network of faith leaders, religious institutions, and community members committed to making change and ending the HIV epidemic in Black America.  The initiative successfully completed its Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action in fall of 2018.
