A 1996 Kaiser Family Foundation survey indicates that 66% of Americans support needle exchange programs. HIV is spreading almost six times more quickly among women than among men. The CDC states that American women with AIDS die 33% faster than American men with AIDS. Every year, 40,000-50,000 new HIV infections occur in the US. One in two HIV infections happened to someone who is 25 years old or younger (ONAP 3/96). By the year 2000, the number of AIDS orphans in the US will exceed 125,000 (The Orphan Project).

Women are becoming incresingly affected by HIV. Approimately 41% , or 12.1 million of the 29.5 million adults living with HIV or AIDS worldwide are women (Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS). According to the Global IDS Policy Coalition, if current trends continue through the end of this century, between 60 and 70 million adults will have been infected with HIV by the end of the year 2000.
