Increase of HIV infection among Indian woman linked to cheating husbands

A new UN study says that in India, “a significant proportion of new infections isoccuring in women who are in monogamous relationships and have been infected by husbands or partners who have multiple sex partners.
The report, Gender Impact of HIV and AIDS in India, was put out by the UNDP, the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO), and the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER).
The report also says that women account for about 39 percent of people in India living with HIV and that 60 percent of “the HIV-positive widows are nearly less than 30 years of age and staying with their natal families after being thrown out from their marital homes following the death of their husbands.
So terrible.
