Site Summary: 

Asians and Pacific Islanders (A&PIs) are as susceptible to HIV infection as are other racial or ethnic groups. A&PIs are the fastest growing population in the US. From 1980 to 1994, the A&PI population doubled from 1.6% to 3.0% of the total US population. It is estimated that the A&PI population will increase to 4.4% of the US total, over 12 million persons, by the year 2020. 1

While the number of reported AIDS cases among A&PIs remains small -- about 1% of total cases reported in the US 2 -- underreporting and a lack of detailed HIV surveillance about A&PIs may mask the true nature of the epidemic among A&PIs. Only the states of California, Hawai'i and New Mexico, local health departments in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland and New York City and the territory of Guam report AIDS cases among A&PIs by ethnicity/national origin
