Remember an anonymous woman

The percentage of women living with HIV and AIDS varies significantly between different regions of the world. In 2009, in sub-Saharan Africa, there were around 12 million women living with HIV and AIDS, compared to about 8.2 million men. In the US, African American and Hispanic women account for 80 percent of AIDS cases, even though they represent less than one-quarter of the population. As in other industrialized countries, the epidemic in the U.S. has disproportionately affected women in marginalized sections of the population including ethnic minorities, immigrants and refugees.
