New National Survey on American Views on the AIDS Crisis in Africa

To shed light on Americans’ views about the state of the HIV/AIDS epidemic worldwide and the role of the U.S. in addressing the global epidemic, the Kaiser Family Foundation conducted a national survey of Americans about their attitudes towards HIV/AIDS globally and in sub-Saharan Africa, in particular. This survey examines Americans’ understanding of the magnitude of the epidemic, perceptions about access to treatment and care, and support for government and private sector involvement in prevention and treatment in developing nations. It is being released in preparation for the 13th International AIDS Conference to be held in Durban, South Africa.
