11/26/2003 Entry: "HIV number going up redux"

"From 1999 through 2002, the number of new H.I.V. cases soared by 26 percent among Hispanics and by 17 percent among men who have sex with men, while the increase in new cases over all for that period was 5.1 percent, according to the study.

"'Because more effective treatments are available, there seems to be a perception particularly in the gay community that H.I.V. is a manageable disease,' said Dr. Robert Janssen, director of the division of H.I.V. and AIDS prevention at the centers. 'Most of the increase in the Latino community is due to men having sex with men. I think the disease just doesn't have the fear that it once carried.'

"Dr. Jeffrey Laurence, program consultant for the American Foundation for AIDS Research in New York, said: 'Even among populations targeted for outreach, it's as if people think they can become infected because there's a pill to take care of them. There needs to be a stronger message that it's not a picnic to be on these drugs and that even when you're being treated you can still transmit this disease.'

"Efforts to promote AIDS prevention and convey the gravity of the disease have not reached Hispanics and other minorities, experts say. Too often, Dr. Laurence said, AIDS education programs rely on blanket messages that are too weak to combat the widespread images of healthy, resilient AIDS patients in drug advertisements."
H.I.V. Infections Continue Rise, Study Says, by Anahad O'Connor, NY Times, November 27, 2003

Manageable? Oh yeah? Well, see what Dr. KE Rodgers and Dan Savage had to say about that in J LHLS 1 last summer. Manageable, fer God's sake.

And not a word in this article that the numbers for women are also rising. Sigh. Well, KE Rodgers covers that in her essay. But, still, sigh.
