Earthwatch

by Bradley Miskell

61 percent of Kentucky teens vowing abstinence had sex within a year—and were less likely to use condoms than those not pledging chastity, a Northern Kentucky U. survey revealed.

Prime Minister Sam Hinds of Guyana—South America’s HIV epicenter—became one of the world’s few politicians to walk the walk, leading an annual Walk-a-Thon against HIV stigma.
