From the Paper:

"Diaz (1998) notes that certain populations are affected more so than others by the HIV epidemic, including not just Asian but also Latino ethnic groups, with subgroups within the Latino population including Puerto Ricans often considered the most subordinate or affected population. In this sense, one may infer social constructions occur not only within society at large, but also at the micro level, within social groups. The Asian HIV population may be viewed by society at large as lower on the hierarchical chain with respect to status and influence, representing a macro level social construction."
