FYI: A city health department study of recent data on new HIV infections found that the epicenter of the city’s epidemic continues to reside in Harlem and Chelsea, according to a Gay City News report on the study. When measuring by the number of HIV infections per 100,000 people recorded in the first three months of 2002, Central Harlem-Morningside Heights ranked highest and Chelsea-Clinton came in second, health officials said. More than half of the 1,030 new infections citywide during that time period were among African Americans. [4/11/03]
