    I found this study to be quite shocking and demonstrating a need for renewed education in the US. Since HIV has become a condition that you can "live" with provided you take your cocktail - education about the disease has become almost non existent. But the cost is simply too high and we are in danger of another epidemic.

    The fact that 2% of all african americans in the US have HIV is alarming - why hasn't there been more coverage of this in the mainstream press and what will be done to reduce the infection rate?
