More Americans "Very Concerned" About Getting HIV
The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) has conducted its eighth national survey of Americans’ attitudes toward HIV/AIDS, according to a KFF statement. Key findings include: More Americans are personally “very concerned” about getting HIV; African Americans are more concerned about HIV than whites; stigma remains widespread (more than half of those surveyed don’t want people with HIV cooking, teaching or working with them—but such attitudes have declined in recent years); more than half of Americans support increased HIV/AIDS funding; and fewer than one in 10 say the federal government spends too much on HIV/AIDS. The survey had a random sample of 2,583 adults ages 18 and older.
