Interview for news article
      #111042 - 08/30/04 05:32 PM

I work for "Voices Unabridged", a magazine on women and human rights. You can see it at www.voices-unabridged.com

I would like to profile a woman living with HIV in New York city. You can remain anonymous and not have your name cited in the article if you so choose. My approach is to present, from a gender perspective, the daily reality of being HIV positive.
If you are willing to talk with me please contact me at mayssoun@aol.com or call me at (347) 724-6271
Thank you ,

Less than one in a million

Caucasian heterosexual women (even including I..V. drugs users) represent
an 'AIDS' risk of only about ONE IN A MILLION or less. In California last
year there were only 79 cases.

HIV Testing Among Racial/Ethnic Minorities --- United States, 1999

Of the 774,467 AIDS cases reported to CDC during June 1981--December 2000
(2), blacks and Hispanics accounted for 56% of cases, although they
represented 25% of the U.S. population during this period. In 2000, the
incidence of adult and adolescent AIDS cases per 100,000 population was
74.2 for blacks, 30.4 for Hispanics, and 7.9 for whites.

Of the 7.9% Caucasian cases only about 7% are said to be from heterosexual
activity. (Source: - CDC)

That translates to 0.55 per 100,000 or: -

JUST ONE AIDS CASE IN EVERY 200,000 Caucasian heterosexuals.

Hardly a spectacular figure.Lightning deaths in America kill 75 to 100
people a year.

BUT WOMEN ARE ONLY A TINY PERCENTAGE OF THAT VERY SMALL FIGURE

Caucasian heterosexual women (even including I..V. drugs users) represent
an 'AIDS' risk of only about ONE IN A MILLION or less. In California last
year there were only 79 cases.

IN REAL TERMS A ZERO RISK!

These figures beg the question is 'AIDS' caused by an std or by poverty.

Could African American and Hispanic women really be having so much more
sex? A graph of 'AIDS' fits perfectly with a graph of poverty in America
but in no way reflects sexual activity.
