New AIDS Statistics In Lebanon


Lebanon's National AIDS Program released new statistics for the last three years that indicate a jump in cases of gay people being diagnosed with HIV, moving from a minority to a slight majority.

In 2007, about 52 percent of cases were heterosexual while only 26 percent were homosexual (the rest being “bisexuals” or “unidentified,” standing at around 10 percent each). Homosexual cases jumped to 49 percent of the total the following year, compared to heterosexual cases (34 percent).

The percentages are shifting again this year, standing at 40 percent (heterosexual) and 34 percent (homosexual). The 2007-2009 averages stand at 41 percent of cases involving homosexuals, and 30 percent affecting heterosexuals.

Hello, my name is Sarah. I am in a political science class which focus is on the gay and lesbian movements of the past, present, and looking toward the future. I was wondering about your post; New AIDS statistics in Lebanon. I was wondering why there is such a huge fluctuation, from year to year, in the heterosexual's and homosexual's who were part of the AIDS statistics in Lebanon? It seems as if the categories of AIDS infected people are switching places. Is there another variable to create these differences in AIDS infected in each category?

When you feel you have had RuneScape Gold enough of the emotion, ask yourself rs gold if you're willing to carry that negativity with you for the rest of the day. If not, take a deep breath. As you exhale, release RS 2 Gold all that negativity with your breath.

Hi,

I hope this finds you well. Healthline just released an informative article with graphics regarding HIV/AIDs facts in the US and around the World. The page details who is being effected and the cost of treatment. You can check out the resource here: http://www.healthline.com/health/hiv-aids/facts-statistics-infographic

This valuable, med-reviewed information shows the need to continueeducating people on prevention and how to protect yourself and your loved ones. I thought this would be a great resource for your audience, and I am writing to ask if you would include it as a source of information on your page: http://ahbab.blogspot.com/2009/08/new-aids-statistics-in-lebanon-lebanons.html

Please let me know if this would be possible. I’m happy to answer any other questions as well.

Warm regards,
