New York City African-American men ages 40 to 54 are almost three times as likely as other city residents to be HIV-positive, according to a report from the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, released Monday at the 15th International AIDS Conference in Bangkok, Thailand. Across the city, one in every 14 middle-aged black men are HIV-positive; in Manhattan, the rate is one in seven. According to the report, many middle-aged African-American men are not being tested in the early stages of infection and do not know they need treatment. (AP)
