New Jersey: HIV on Rise in Hudson County
April 1, 2011
The Hudson Pride Connection team hopes to promote HIV awareness and raise $15,000 from this year's New York AIDS Walk. The May 15 event in Central Park is being organized by Gay Men's Health Crisis. In last year's walk, the HPC team raised $9,000 for HIV/AIDS services, said Nancy Camaño, its executive director.
"Unfortunately the number of recorded cases continues to rise nationally and especially here in Hudson County among the heterosexual female African-American community," said Marvin Krieger, director of Hudson County's HIV/AIDS Planning Council.
