HIV Awareness Gets MTV Touch

December 1, 2006

MTV will reach out to teens and young adults today on World AIDS Day by airing two programs on HIV/AIDS. The shows, which feature pop stars Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, are being supplemented by MTV's news broadcasts and its campaign www.thinkhiv.org. New HIV/AIDS cases are slowing in all US age groups except among persons ages 13-29, said CDC. A Kaiser Family Foundation survey of 18-to 25-year-olds found many young people do not know the basics of HIV. More than one-third -- 37 percent -- said HIV could be transmitted by sharing a glass, kissing, or touching a toilet seat, KFF said.
