NCDOH surveillance data from 1998-2002 for newly reported HIV infections and North Carolina census data were reviewed (6); age- and race-specific HIV rates were calculated.
Of the 49 HIV-positive black male college students who had been identified previously by the NCDOH HIV surveillance system, 17 (35%) were recruited for the study; 24 could no longer be located or did not respond to inquiries, seven refused participation, and one was deceased.
In response to these findings, CDC and NCDOH are collaborating to adapt a scientifically based preventive intervention for the black MSM population in North Carolina (7).
