HIV and AIDS aren't the headline grabbers they once were, but there's still an alarming increase in the percentage of very young people in our region who are contracting the virus. New medications are keeping people alive longer than once expected and fear of getting AIDS through casual contact has faded. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the state of HIV and AIDS in Northeast Ohio nearly 30 years after the disease's onset. Plus, we'll discuss needle exchange, a controversial program that's reducing one of the most common ways of spreading HIV and other diseases. Join us, Tuesday at 9 on 90.3.
