In another article, Inter Press Service examines HIV/AIDS in Cuba, writing that the country has a prevalence rate of "0.18 percent in the 15-49 age group, described as 'exceptionally low' by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS." IPS looks at the work of the Cuban AIDS Prevention Group (GPsida), a national network of "voluntary health advocates [who have] been working for the past two decades to promote safe practices for curbing the spread of HIV and helping improve the quality of life for HIV-positive people, backing up the work of government health agencies," according to the news service (Gonzalez, 6/18).
