      @Brandi~ SO WHAT! your state didn`t make the list, it doesn`t mean that no one in your town has it, people are contracting hiv\aids everyday. You get it no matter your race age marital status or where you stay. Protect yourself or ABSTINENCE!

      Dam, most of the states are in the east coast.

      Most of the high numbers of aids is on the east cost but this may be due to excellent medical treatment here. Keep safe so aids will not cause you to need Aid.

    • Get Tested!!!

      Regardless of what states made the list, you have to take into consideration a lot of people do not get tested. Its a sad truth, but its the truth! Know your status people!
