Today, Bristol-Myers Squibb, the pharmaceutical monolith that charges nearly $1000 for a 30 day supply of one of its HIV/AIDS medications, is donating $1 to the National AIDS Fund for each person who simply visits their website and "virtually lights a candle."

Please, please take a minute to "light a candle":

On the "Light to Unite" Web site, visitors can light a virtual candle, share stories about how HIV/AIDS has impacted their lives, and help increase awareness of the epidemic by e-mailing a friend. For each virtual candle lit through December 31, 2006, Bristol-Myers Squibb will contribute $1 to the National AIDS Fund, up to a maximum contribution of $100,000, to benefit AIDS service organizations in underserved communities in the U.S."

They maxed that out a long time ago. Go to the site if you want, but they won't be donating any more.

Skip, this isn't addressed to you, but:

I don't want to turn this into a DC matter, but I think it's pretty damned shitty to be apathetic about someone contracting a fatal virus because they may engage in sexual practices that increase the rates of disease transmission due to damage incurred by certain mucous membranes.

Unless you happened to be a hemophiliac...or live in a country with poor blood testing measures.

Tell that to Arthur Ashe.

Furthermore husbands never cheat on their wives or vice versa and then infect them. :rolleyes:

Hey dipshit,

My uncle is a district manager for Bristol Myers' HIV meds division and oversees training for all the drug reps from Pittsburgh to Kansas City. I did an internship with him, and I've also written graduate level papers on the cultural effects of AIDS in 21st century America for my master's work. There's an idiot in this dialogue, but it's not the one typing this message.

In the world, yes. Something like 96% are in Africa. But in the USA, its a different story.

In the United States, HIV infection and AIDS have had a tremendous effect on men who have sex with men (MSM). MSM accounted for 70% of all estimated HIV infections among male adults and adolescents in 2004 (based on data from 35 areas with long-term, confidential name-based HIV reporting*), even though only about 5% to 7% of male adults and adolescents in the United States identify themselves as MSM [1,2]. The number of HIV diagnoses for MSM decreased during the 1980s and 1990s, but recent surveillance data show an increase in HIV diagnoses for this group [3, 4]. This increase points to a continued need for culturally appropriate prevention and education services.

It's not 96%, it's closer to 2/3, but that's another argument.

Re: the US...

This is not news to anyone. But guess who is the largest growing group of new AIDS cases in the US---black women. You should also know that study has implicit selective bias within it. Do you really think all MSM are going to honestly answer that they are gay? There is a reason there is a term called "in the closet".

for some reason I thought the fastest growing group was white young girls? I know I'm probably wrong. Do you know if that also includes a specific age group among black women? I'm just curious.

18-34. When talking about AIDS in America, and exempting the gay community, the disease has always had greatest concentration among groups with lower socioeconomic status. Blacks are seven times more likely to be infected than whites and hispanics are 3x more likely. Because of the physiology of women, they are also more likely to undergo seroconversion with each sexual encounter.
