HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get the virus at some point in their lives.

Although the overall racial disparity in cancer death rates is decreasing, in 2012, the death rate for all cancers combined was 24% higher in black men and 14% higher in black women than in white men and women, respectively.

Even with an already high rate of occurrence, African-American women are two to three times more likely to have recurring fibroids or suffer from complications from them. 

  • Southern states bear the greatest burden of HIV, accounting for 50% of new infections in 2014.
