HIV/AIDS Ravaging Washington DC

Posted by Condomologist on March 19, 2009

This week reports out of Washington DC show that at least 3% of the residents there are infected with HIV/AIDS. Pretty scary stuff when the capital of the richest country on Earth has higher rates of infection than West Africa. And a seperate study of heterosexual behaviour in the District released the same day “found that 70% of those surveyed did not use condoms during a recent sexual encounter.” The city plans a campaign to promote condom use, among many other modes of attack on this crisis. We all need to do a better job on many fronts — condoms, sex ed, poverty, access to contraception — with numbers like these so far out of control.
