The Numbers are Frightening

Florida has one of the highest rates of HIV infection in the United States.
Since July '97 when name reporting began in Florida through February '98, four thousand one hundred twenty-three people have been reported as infected with HIV. This means that approximately one in 172 people in Florida are estimated to be HIV positive.
HIV infection is growing faster in rural couties than in cities.
AIDS is the number one killer of nonwhite women aged 15-44 in Florida.
