When We Talk About HIV, Who Are We Not Talking About Enough?

I think the community we don't talk about the most is the heterosexual community. We always talk about them being a part of this disease and a part of the numbers; but we don't focus on them enough, and we don't educate them enough or get the information out to them. We may feel like we don't need to worry about them, because HIV-related problems are bigger in other areas. Instead, let's look at heterosexuals and see where we can give them the education, give them the knowledge, as well as other groups. That way they'll be equipped with the knowledge, they'll know their status, and they'll be able to spread that information to other people.
