Abstract

In this report, health disparities are measured by examining differences in HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and tuberculosis surveillance data with respect to such sociodemographic factors as race/ethnicity, gender, and age. In addition, where possible, disparities are measured by examining differences by sexual orientation and geographic location. This report includes a retrospective review of CDC surveillance data for HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and tuberculosis over the period 2000-2004.
