I read an article on Foxnews.com today about how the World Health Organization admits that the threat of an HIV epidemic among heterosexuals outside of Africa is over.

While this is good news, how do you think it should be publicized? Do you think that if people know this, that they will then stop engaging in safer sex behaviors? Would that increase the number of heterosexual people getting HIV?

say WHAT? That is tacit nonsense...most of the women with HIV/Aids in Africa got it from a man....most children orphaned in Africa got that way from Parents who died from Aids...

Nope -- I am not signing up for this and neither should anyone else. It sounds like someone is trying to find reasons to NOT send money or medicine to me...

Right - well, they are specifically talking about OUTSIDE of Africa. Like, they think that heterosexuals who are not injecting drug users in the US, Canada and Europe probably have nothing to worry about. Clearly, in Africa, there is a huge need still.

What are your thoughts on that?
