Abstract: This paper describes the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Hawaii. Data indicate gradual but steady changes in characteristics of infected populations. Most significant are increases in cases among Asian Pacific Islanders, women, heterosexuals and younger age groups. Early harm reduction measures and low incidence among injection drug users relative to other parts of the U.S. may have played a significant role in containing the epidemic.
