Abstract:Prior research indicates that HIV/AIDS communication must be viewed as a key component of the implementation of a comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention program. In view of the radical increase in HIV/AIDS in the African American community, tailoring health messages on prevention strategies to African Americans becomes particularly important. This paper focuses on health communication to African Americans as an integral part of contemporary HIV/AIDS interventions.
