Cross-Cultural Considerations in the Recruitment of Latinos of Mexican Origin in HIV/AIDS Clinical Trails in the U.S.-Mexico Border Region: Clinican and Patient Perspectives

Author: Ziga, Mara Luisa
Date Published: 2010


This research is based on the data collection of primarly Clinical Trials where HIV services providers report system-level barriers, such as the lack of HIV clinical trials and health care within Latino populations. There has been a notable increase of HIV infections and AIDS diagnoses among Latinos since 2005. This qualitative study was conducted in San Diego, California. In-depth interviews were conducted with 37 Latino patients living with HIV which were 18 years of age or older. The trails were directed by 15 HIV physicians who actively served Latinos with HIV. The participants were divided by those who had participated in a clinical trail, those who had not participated in one prior to this study and by their gender.
