The article reports that homosexuality is the major contributor to the transmission of the HIV in the U.S. However, injection drug use and heterosexual contact are also exacting a greater toll. Comparison between the statistics of 1990's and 1980's testifies the fact. Women now make up 18% of Americans with AIDS-more than twice the proportion early in the epidemic. Most of the AIDS patients in the country are in the Midwest and the South. More than one-half million AIDS cases have been reported in the U.S. roughly half since 1993.
