AIDS is spreading faster in the rural South
Daily Yonder, August 27, 2008
The Centers for Disease Control underestimated new cases of AIDS by 40%, and many of those newly infected with the disease are rural people who have not considered themselves at risk. In addition, the Rural Center for AIDS/STD Prevention found that between 1993 and 2003, "AIDS cases in rural areas of the U.S. increased by 202%, compared to an increase of only 147% in large U.S. cities."
