A new report by the Kaiser family foundation, "The Crisis of HIV/AIDS Among Latinos/Hispanics in United States, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands," released in advance of the XVII International AIDS Conference in Mexico City, says that Hispanics are the second most affected community of people living with HIV in the U.S.

Despite representing only 15.3% of the U.S. population, Hispanics constituted 22% of the HIV/AIDS cases diagnosed in 2006. The Latino Commission on AIDS will continue to advocate for all individuals to be tested for HIV, for culturally targeted services and for a "comprehensive response" to HIV/AIDS. In addition, the commission's president called for the current and next U.S. presidential administration to formulate a "robust domestic AIDS agenda sensitive to the needs of all communities and relevant to the cultures of Hispanic communities." Hispanic communities need HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns in both Spanish and English and that outreach should extend to both rural and urban areas.
