AIDS continues to be threat

Posted: Thursday, December 04, 2003

Advances in medicine have cut into the deadly nature of AIDS and people with HIV, but those advances are part of the reason why more education is necessary.

Experts say that new HIV cases continue to increase. And a majority of the new cases are coming from a younger segment of the population. Part of the reason, they say, is because youngsters see cases of superstars who have developed AIDS living longer, more productive lives, and they begin to think that the disease isn't the killer it once was.

They are wrong. ...

That is scarier for people if they are not in monogamous relationships.

Trouble is, you probably won't know if your date is HIV positive unless he or she tells you, and there is a good chance that your partner may not even know.

The state and nation have made considerable progress in the fight against HIV and AIDS. But the battle is far from over.
