The Diffusion of AIDS and Social Deprivation in North Carolina


Abstract:
The HIV syndrome and the AIDS epidemic will be around for a long time. While many Americans feel it is mainly found in the gay population, the epidemic has now spread through all levels of our society. Disadvantaged populations, who have greater health and medical problems, and also less access to medical care, are more at risk of the disease. The authors give an analysis of the geographical spread of AIDS in NC, which began in the late 1980s, and focus on the linkage between the disease and social deprivation.
