HIV/AIDS Report To Be Released Today

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and members of his health team, including Shannon Hader, director of the HIV/AIDS Administration, will release two reports this morning about the state of the disease in the District of Columbia. For the first time, the HIV office says that it has a confident count of those living with HIV or AIDS in the District.

The number is 15,120 people, or about 3 percent of those over the age of 12 in the city.

The second report focuses on heterosexual behavior and shows some disturbing trends about HIV/AIDS awareness.

Fenty will release the reports at 10:30 a.m. at the Unity Health Care Hunt Place Health Center at 4130 Hunt Place, NE.

Washington Post reporters Jose Antonio Vargas and Darryl Fears wrote about the report in Sunday's paper.
