AIDS More Prevalent Among Teenage Girls In The US

With the World AIDS Day fast approaching, alarming results have been projected by various health reports across different regions of the globe.// A recent report published only point out to the increasing rates of incidence of HIV/AIDS among youth, more specifically in young girls in the United States.
