women with hiv
Jul 6, 2001

do women have the higher hiv status?

Response from Dr. Aberg

NO.Currently there are still more men that are HIV positive than women. This is particularly true in the developing world. We do not actually know the gender statistics in many other countries as that information is not collected.

The percent of women in the United States becoming infected is increasing over the past few years especially among women of color.
