The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently posted new resources on two important HIV prevention topics:

HIV among womenUpdated Fact Sheet: HIV among Women – According to 2009 HIV surveillance data, women represented 24% of all diagnoses of HIV infection among U.S. adults and adolescents in 40 states with long-established, confidential name-based reporting. In 2008, an estimated 25% of adults and adolescents living with HIV infection were female.

HIV among transgenderNew Topic: HIV among Transgender People – Transgender communities in the United States are among the groups at highest risk for HIV infection.



Both are available as web pages as well as formatted in PDF for download and printing.
