Wisconsin HIV Surveillance Reports

History

In 1998, the alarmingly high numbers of HIV infections among African-Americans led U.S. Surgeon General, David Satcher, to declare a National State of Emergency. To respond to the AIDS crisis, the African-American HIV/AIDS Task Force was formed by the Black Health Coalition in November 1998. The Task Force brings together community based organizations (CBOs), churches, businesses, criminal justice, educators, health care providers, social service organizations, fraternities and sororities, AIDS-serving organizations, HIV infected and affected individuals, families, and volunteers.  We believe the community must play a leadership role in creating solutions to the challenges it faces.
