Preliminary Findings from a New National Survey of Teens on HIV/AIDS, 2000


The White House released a new report entitled Youth and HIV/AIDS 2000: A New American Agenda, which highlights the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on young people. Half of all new HIV infections are estimated to occur among young people under the age of 25. The Kaiser Family Foundation released preliminary findings from a new national survey of teens on HIV/AIDS. Most teens say HIV/AIDS is a serious problem they are personally concerned about. But more than two thirds wouldn’t know where to go to get tested. A report on the complete survey will be released later this year.
