Caribbean American communities are incredibly diverse and have contributed greatly to the growth of this Nation.

As with many racial and ethnic minority communities, Caribbeans and  Caribbean Americans have taboos against discussing sexual matters related to HIV risk. There is a stigma associated with men having sex with men and because of this stigma some individuals avoid getting tested for HIV.

Delayed HIV testing and diagnosis among Caribbean Americans seriously endangers their health and the health of their sexual partners.

Let's begin to break the stigma by discussing the risk factors associated with HIV and work to encourage our community to get educated, get tested and get treated.

CAMA is leading the effort to eliminate HIV/AIDS within ethnic and racial health disparities, also building capacity and bridges to care in communities of color
