HIV/AIDS is an epidemic in Black America, and studies show that 38% of Black Americans have a family member or close friend living with HIV/AIDS. But issues of stigma, limited healthcare access, sexual and other cultural dynamics along with other factors have made it difficult to halt the spread of the virus in the Black community and ensure that people who are affected get needed treatment and support.

This customized seminar sponsored and funded by Kaiser Permanente's National Diversity Office was part of the health care organization's community outreach and educational strategy to increase public awareness and encourage prevention.

The program is divided into "chapters" for flexibility in viewing.
