Last night I watched part of a show about an Ethiopian woman who works in the Bronx (my hometown) with black women who have AIDS. She also does preventive care and talks to community groups and schoolgirls. It was really interesting. I'm happy to say that one of the things they stress is using condoms. She will not work with abstinence-only groups.
