I really wish that if you are a victim of Aids, at least try to contact the person or persons you are or have slept with. You could be saving someone's life in the process. This disease is rapidly spreading, and it is nothing to be ashame of because it is a sickness just like Cancer or anything else. I know if iI ever get it, I won't spread it, I have to meet my maker one day.

The only thing that frightens me is that you really don't know if you can get it kissing or not. That was'nt proven yet. You can probably get it off of a toilet seat too. It is really scary.

No, you cannot get AIDS from casual contact. You must exchange bodily fluids such as blood or semen, not saliva. If the person was bleeding profusely from the mouth and it came in contact with an open wound, maybe. Toilet seat, no.

You don't have to wonder about these things. The box that you are staring into is filled with information on any subject you desire. Use it to educate yourself.

..It's true you won't get it from casual contact..but if you work in the Health Care profession..it can be a potential hazard dealing with AIDS stricken patients i.e. Needle "Sticks" and the like...as far as someone knowing they have the disease..and engaging in promiscuous behavior..they can be prosecuted for crimial intent.

I statistics shows Pointe Coupee Parish has a high ratio of the Disease, is this due to careless/don't care attitudes.

Ok Seriously! It is cotracted through blood and bodily fluids. Not kissing or toilet seats. Strap up and don't share needles if you don't want to get it! Grow UP and pay attention! Stupidity annoys me!

I donot have time to post a link however, you may contact DHH (Department of Health Hosptial), you may be chasing your tail for a answer. This department only give public awareness. Persons affective by the disease, have privacy rights. The Board members do have a list, but cannot breach ethics. However, if you know someone on the board you may get a sneak preview. On the other hand, if you are worried that you may have come in contact with a individual who is affected by the disease contact DHH, the will contact the indivual. I fyou know someone who is purposely spreading the virus, dhh will have the person clorentine.

Please only post facts that are backed up by actual statistics. If there is a higher incidence of HIV in PC, it shouldn't be hard to locate. Given your use of "Clorentine", I'm going to assume your stat was bullshit.

People are quarantined when they have diseases that are highly communicable and HIV/AIDS isn't one of them.

You are right that people need to be more careful and make responsible decisions regarding their health. An entire culture needs change to eradicate this disease. It doesn't target certain sexes, colors, or economic groups. It targets everyone equally, but some people choose to reduce or eliminate their risk while others press their luck.

Pointe Coupee does have one of the highest AIDS rates in the state. I have seen the statistics before and if you are truly interested, they shouldn't be hard to find. The list I saw was part of a presentation by a HIV/AIDS support group in Baton Rouge to healthcare professionals.

Upon further research, I learned things have improved in Pointe Coupee in the last several years. Rates by parish are listed on the DHH HIV/AIDS website under the 2008 report. Pointe Coupee had 43 known cases in 2006, the latest year for which stats are given. Don't know what the rate per capita would be.

Thank you. I quickly tried finding them and struck out. I only want the figures, not to call anyone out.
