Study sees a surge of HIV cases among older adults

Currently, about 19% of all people with HIV/AIDS in the United States are age 50 and older.  This number reflects a combination of people over 50 who have been recently diagnosed with HIV, as well as people who have been living with the virus for decades since improved treatments are helping people with HIV live longer.
Our SHAPE program was developed specifically to provide HIV/AIDS and substance abuse prevention for minority women over the age of 50 in Wayne County, Michigan (Detroit is the largest city in Wayne County) . 
We received a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to target African American, Arab/Chaldean, Hispanic/Latino, Homeless/Transitional and Veteran women age 50 and older.

SHAPE is going into its third year (of a five-year SAMHSA grant) and we’re gratified to be making a difference ONE WOMAN AT A TIME

We know there are many barriers for reaching older minority women when it comes to HIV/AIDS and substance abuse prevention.  DENIAL AND SILENCE are two of the barriers that can be deadly.

SHAPE team members will come out and speak for FREE to any group in Wayne County that includes women age 50 or older. And we also provide free, confidential HIV testing (using OraQuick, mouth swab testing with results available in 20 minutes). 

Please call us at (313) 736-5541 to schedule a free, SHAPE presentation.  Meanwhile, please read more about HIV and older adults: Study Sees Surge of HIV Cases Among Older Adults http://www.medindia.net/news/Study-Sees-Surge-of-HIV-Cases-Among-Older-Adults-76634-1.htm#ixzz17Lq6LNNo

  1. My friend and I had been just debating this specific topic, he is usually seeking to show me wrong. Your view on this is great and exactly how I truly believe. I just mailed him this great site to demonstrate him your own point of view. After looking over your website I book-marked and will come back to read your updates!

      Hi sportster,

      Thanks for your interest in our SHAPE blog. You asked about related articles. I’d suggest using search engines like google to look for similar topics. We also use Web sites such as cdc.gov; thebody.com; blackaids.org; greaterthan.org; aidsfund.org; kff.org (for the Kaiser Family Foundation) and msnbc.com. These are just a few of the Web sites we use and they are all wonderful, credible sites. Good luck to you.
