This groundbreaking book provides a comprehensive historical prospective of the disproportionate burden of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among African Americans. It opens with a foreword that features a Q&A session with early HIV prevention pioneers and champions, Drs. David Satcher and Helene Gayle. The chapters that follow explore the context of HIV and STIs in African American communities and include discussions of sexuality and the roles of faith and spirituality in HIV and STI prevention efforts.

Additional chapters provide insight into strategies, e.g., HIV testing, condom distribution and marketing campaigns, parent-child communication, effective clinical care and support, and partnerships, for addressing HIV and other STI-related health disparities within these communities.

The book is a valuable resource for practitioners, scholars, clinicians, educators, providers, policy makers and students.
