June 3, 2009

While the number of new cases of HIV in Wisconsin has stabilized over the last decade, women now represent more of the overall number of cases, the AP/Chicago Tribune reports (AP/Chicago Tribune, 6/2). According to Mike Gifford, CEO of the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW), 21 percent of new infections are women, compared with 16 percent in the 1990s and 6 percent in the1980s. Gifford says that women need to be better informed about their risk of contracting HIV. Christina Colon, ARCW's associate director of prevention, said the organization is targeting women's health fairs to raise awareness (Simonson, Wisconsin Public Radio, 6/1).
