HIV infected women outnumber men

HIV (human immunodeficiency infection) tends to spread among women at a far greater speed than among men, a new report reveals.

The "feminization" of &to=http://english.pravda.ru/main/18/90/360/14436_hiv.html' target=_blank>AIDS appears to reflect a maturing of the epidemic, said the authors of the annual AIDS update prepared by the United Nations, World Health Organization and World Bank. More and more seemingly low-risk women, many of them married, are being infected by men who acquired the virus through high-risk behavior years ago.

From 2002 to 2004, the percentage of infected people who are women rose or stayed the same in all regions, reports News Observer.
