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

 15/15

I think the communities that we are missing right now are those older than 50 -- the aging population. I think that's something that we're missing because the concern is that we need to be focused on the whole picture and not just the youth. The concern is that the pendulum is swinging back the other way toward youth regarding HIV, so we're chasing after these targets, but we're missing these other groups. How do we make sure we're adequately addressing that people feel part of the conversation?
