• HIV infection and AIDS are now the 6th leading cause of death among young persons aged 15 to 24 years.
• According to CDC surveillance data, African American adolescents are also disproportionately affected by HIV. As of December 2001, 4,428 adolescents (aged 13-19 years) were reported with AIDS and 61% of those cases were among African Americans. Moreover, data from the 36 states that conduct HIV case surveillance indicates that 67% of the HIV cases among adolescents were Black.
• Among female adolescents approximately two-thirds of AIDS cases were attributed to heterosexual contact.
• The gonorrhea rate for 15-19 years old in Philadelphia rose by nearly 18% between 1995 and 2000, while the Chlamydia rates in younger youth, ages 12-14, are also increasing.
• A CDC funded Youth Risk Behavior Survey of High School students conducted in 2001 indicated that 62% of students have been sexually active.
• The most recent Children’s Report Card by the Philadelphia Coalition For Kids gave Philadelphia a rating of “5 – Problematic with a Long Way to Go” in the area of sexually transmitted infections among Philadelphia’s youth. Recent screening efforts at the city’s Youth Study Center found a Chlamydia infection rate of 5.5%.
