Episode of Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) cable show Living with AIDS, covering topics related to women with AIDS. Begins with clip from CBS special "Aids Hits Home", acknowledging new media coverage of heterosexual women with AIDS because of an inherent threat to middle class. Ruth Rodriguez from the Hispanic AIDS Forum notes that IV drug users comprise 60% of HIV+ women, a social group largely ignored by health professionals. Outreach and AIDS education media should be produced for a range of social groups. References Needle Talk, a series released by the New York Department of Health with physicians and educators discussing IV drug use, sex, and AIDS/HIV transmission.
