I've done my fair share of reading and research on the topic of HIV/AIDS. Mostly to educate myself of on the subject and to be able to understand the dynamics of the disease as a whole. Recently, I've noticed a trend developing among the newest infections. In the past it was thought to be a disease that afflicted mostly Homosexual men and IV Drug users. Over the past decade or so, there have been an increasing number of women diagnosed with HIV. In my findings a disproportionate number of women, especially women of color have been infected. According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 62% of the women in this country living with AIDS are African American.
