A recent study acknowledges and further exposes the inequality of racial groups in HIV medical studies. Most of the people living with HIV/AIDS are African Americans, yet they are largely underrepresented in studies. It is largely misconstrued that minorities are not interested in partaking in scientific studies. The findings of the study suggest, however, that once minorities are thoroughly informed about the process of a study and their fears are subsided, they are large advocates towards joining medical studies.
