HIV / AIDS facts you might not know, but need to:
* 1/4 of people who have it don’t know. This is why getting tested is important.
* 1/4 of people who have it are female. Stereotypes about it being a “mans disease” are false.
* 1/5th of people get it through heterosexual contact. This is why homophobic ideas about “who is infected” are just plain wrong.
HIV pin-back buttons are a good way to generate money for programs, and they also help raise awareness.
Come back next week for another HIV button from the same campaign.
