HIV Infections Surging in U.S. Latino Community

New findings issued by the Latino Commission on AIDS reveal that HIV infections have increased in the Latino community by nearly 30 percent in 2004. These numbers are challenging leaders and activists to think about how to more effectively educate the community on how to combat the spread of HIV. NPR's Tavis Smiley speaks with Dennis DeLeon, president of the Latino Commission on AIDS, and acclaimed actress Lupe Ontiveros, who has appeared in such films as As Good as It Gets and Real Women Have Curves.
