The paper presents a summary of the procedures and activities associated with an empirical study comparing self-concept among African-American women with and without HIV/AIDS. The paper explores the relationship between self-concept, self-esteem and HIV/AIDS. The paper also addresses the lack of treatment access for poor African-American women.

From the Paper:

"The proposed research focuses on identifying levels of self-concept among African-American women either diagnosed with HIV/AIDs or believed, because of their socioeconomic and/or sociodemographic status, to be potentially at risk for the development of HIV/AIDS. The research literature strongly suggests that these factors combine to place African-American women at a heightened risk of developing this disease, and also asserts that this particular population represents the group with the fastest-growing incidence of this diagnosis in the United States."
