CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS LAUD NEW REPORT TRACKING HIV/AIDS AMONG NYC WOMEN BY NEIGHBORHOOD

A press release by the Women's HIV Collaborative of New York states that "60% of HIV-positive women reside in just 4 areas of Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Manhattan...". The Women's Collaborative brings women together to address the needs of women infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. The women of the Collaborative are from multi-racial and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and serostatuses. They believe that targeting services in these areas would improve public health benefits and reduct the number of newly infected HIV cases. I know that most of my blog readers are men but we are all in this together. The purpose of this blog entry is just to bring awareness with the hope that these staggering numbers will be dispersed throughout the community.
