D.C Homosexual HIV/AID Surpass West Africa's

WASHINGTON — At least 3 percent of District of Columbia residents have HIV or AIDS, a total that far surpasses the 1 percent threshold that constitutes a "generalized and severe" epidemic, according to a report to be released by health officials Monday.
That translates into 2,984 residents per every 100,000 older than the age of 12 — or 15,120 — according to the 2008 epidemiology report by the District's HIV/AIDS office.
"Our rates are higher than West Africa," said Shannon Hader, director of the District's HIV/AIDS Administration. "They're on par with Uganda and some parts of Kenya."
Men having sex with men has remained the leading mode of transmission for the disease. Heterosexual transmission and injection drug use closely follow, the report says.
