On World AIDs Day you can focus on youth:

Young people ages 13 to 24 account for 26 percent of all new HIV infections, according to the report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which was released on Tuesday in advance of World AIDS Day on Dec. 1. Every month, 1,000 young people in America become infected with HIV and more than half of young people with HIV do not know it.  Black gay, bisexual youths at high risk.
