“As the HIV/AIDS epidemic marks its thirtieth year, the Kaiser Family Foundation is releasing a major, new national surveyour eighth on the topic since 1995to better understand the evolution of public opinion toward the disease and the national efforts to prevent and treat it. Overall, the survey paints a picture of a nation that sees many signs of progress on HIV/AIDS, one which is far less likely to view the disease as an urgent national threat now than when AIDS first emerged in 1981. Masked by the overall numbers, however, are deep pockets of concern among some of the communities most affected by the disease. This report examines broad national trends in public opinion over the past several decades, and also takes an in‐depth look at the views and experiences of two groups in particular: black Americans, whose communities have been severely and disproportionately affected by the disease, as well as young adults under age 30 who have never known a world without HIV. Finally, it focuses in on trends in reported HIV testing rates and experiences.”
