Remember. One in five heterosexual men has contracted HIV from another man! Click on Claudinho without a flower…. !!! (opens in another tab)

And so, we saw a rate of HIV infection 0,24% in a group of nearly 2.100 women, with most are black-skinned women.

Thus, the rate is five times higher than the previous estimates issued by the federal government.

The high rate of infection was found in six geographic areas known for their HIV epidemic indications and, yet, poverty is more common.

Dark-skinned women with HIV account for 66% of cases !!!!!

The Index is similar to those in Sub-Saharan Africa

The six areas studied were in Atlanta, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Newark, NJ, Harlem (New York) and Wake County, NC.

The data comes from the important ISIS study (The Women's HIV Seroincidence Study), which was carried out after previous studies.

Research has shown that black women account for a rate of 66% of new HIV infection cases in the country, but represent only (…) 14% of the population.

Women of color with HIV represent 2000% higher than white women

As black women have 20 times the rate of HIV infection among white women and four times the rate among latinas.

HIV and AIDS are two of the Top Causes of Death Among Black Women in the US.

Some women are unaware that they are infected.

In the study, 1,5% of women found they had HIV only when they enrolled in the study..

"We knew that American black women are disproportionately affected by HIV. ”

And yet, the magnitude of this disparity in the areas most affected by the HIV epidemic worsened the problem ”!

Thus emphasized the lead author of the study, Dr. Sally Hodder, University of Medicine and Dentistry, School of Medicine, New Jersey-New Jersey.

And it was not within a "comfort zone"! This is a story that only I have to tell!

I was the first individual, a CPF, not a CNPJ to, in quotes, “Slap my face”!

For all that I lived, it all happened in a period still troubled by prejudice and, yes, there were prices to be paid.

The currency has always been that of social exclusion and I have even hesitated between continuing or not!

The great “IT” of all this is that without this work, I would have nothing left but leisure and I would certainly not endure it. I have a need to be productive.

We are Borg!

If not bored by the empty hours, at least by suicide due to the absolute lack of purpose that my life would have and the terrible impression of parasitosis that would come to affect me. So, I couldn't stop.

I had the opportunity to accomplish many things and, on the other hand, I missed several opportunities to do more, with a deeper and better reach.

Not everything is as desired. Let it rain (Guilherme Arantes)!

Hi! Guys, thanks for getting this far! Your attention and interest is our greatest interest, we work here, me and mara, in order to inform you, make some clarity in some nebulous points of "all of this".

However, we lack financial resources.

If you like work, if you are able to help and want to help, often the cost of a silly day-to-day for us, will certainly make a difference because, we know, the hummingbird, carrying water on the tip of your beak will make all the difference in the effort to put out the forest fire!

Think about it!

Below are some resources to facilitate support!
