Advocates Say More Asian American Women Need HIV Testing
Health care advocates are calling on providers to test more Asian American women for HIV. Although African Americans have the highest overall infection rate among women, Asian Americans have the highest rate of increase in new infections. But health care providers often assume their Asian patients are not infected, and don't test them.
