NYC's African Diaspora Community Welcomes the Second-Generation Female Condom (FC2)
Date:11/16/2009

ganization stated that HIV infection is now the leading cause of death and disease among women ages 15 to 44. It is also the leading cause of death for African American women of reproductive age in the US. African American women are currently 33 times more likely than white women to be living with HIV/AIDS, and Latino women are four times more likely than white women to become infected with HIV.

"Advocates for women's health in the United States must reignite awareness that AIDS remains a serious challenge to women's health in the United States, especially among women of color," Ms. Nichols said. "It's time to recognize that women need access to HIV prevention tools that they can initiate and discuss with their partners. We need to put the power of prevention in women's hands."
