Observe that parallel to the continuous expansion of the epidemic in major centers, HIV infection spreads to the whole country.

Among the population over the age of 13 we can see a trend of change in the relative share of exposure categories between the beginning of the epidemic and the present decade. The category injecting drug use has increased its share of 12.8% during 1980-88 to 25.1% from 1993. Also gained increasing expression heterosexual transmission accounted for 3.1% of cases reported during the same period jumping to 27.2% in 1994. Such exposure categories are of increasing relevance,

would be occupying the space left by the retraction of the proportionate share of categories of homo and bisexual exposure which increased from 53.8% in the period from 80-88 to 26% in 93. Importantly, the change for the proportionate share of various categories of exhibition reflects a spread of the epidemic to other social groups, breaking with the mistaken notion of risk groups, but does not point to an actual decrease in the epidemic among men who have sex with other men. HIV infection among women Brazilian women are experiencing a large increase in the risk of contracting the AIDS virus.
