December Show '11: "H.I.V. in the City"

New York City is the epicenter of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the United States. HIV diagnoses are 30% higher in the Brooklyn communities of East New York and New Lots than the New York City overall rate. East New York has one of the highest death rates in Brooklyn, New York. At 44.4 per 1000, the age-adjusted death rate in East New York is the second highest in New York City which averaged 29.8. Something needs to be done about this. DAMN YC News producers attempt to open up the dialogue and get the conversations re-ignited about this very important issue. What do you know abut HIV in the city?
