While HIV infections and new HIV diagnoses have been decreasing overall in the US, the CDC says some Latino populations have increases in both. The statistical jump is primarily in under-30 gay men who are one of the country’s youngest and largest minority groups.
Fellow Vincent Guilamo-Ramos, who directs the Center for Latino Adolescent and Family Health (CLAFH) at NYU’s Silver School, has new research on the subject. He’s developed two programs for high-risk communities in the Bronx. Called Families Talking Together (FTT) and Fathers Raising Responsible Men (FRRM), both programs bring families together to discuss sexual health and available educational, career and social services.
