HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are a major concern for the US military, a predominately young, sexually active, male population. This case-control study compares demographic, behavioral, and behaviorally related biological risk characteristics of recently identified male HIV seropositive Navy personnel enrolled in a study from 1997-2001 (RV117), and a male Navy aircraft carrier population. RV117 measured HIV risk factors during the seroconversion window (SCW). Participants completed self-administered surveys. (n = 201) Although modifiable risks were identified, generalizability was unknown. Controls completed a similar self-administered survey. With frequency matching on rank, 3:1 to the cases (n = 603), logistic regression was used to investigate the association between HIV and (1) STI history, and (2) alcohol use. Sub-analyses were conducted among cases with 9-15 month SCW and controls. Overall, HIV seropositive personnel were more likely to be Black (49% vs. 22%), Hispanic (14% vs. 7%), older at equivalent ranks, and single (63% vs. 49%). High rates of risky sexual practices and alcohol misuse were reported by cases and controls. However, cases reported more sexual partners (20 vs. 4), MSM sexual contact (62% vs. 1.5%), casual sex (66% vs. 36%), and anal sex (70% vs. 22%), with similar frequencies of sex with a commercial sex worker (11% and 10%). Recent STIs were reported by 3% of cases and 22% of controls. In logistic regression modeling, STI remained significant with a 7 fold increased risk. Covariates included MSM contact (O.R. 210), inconsistent condom use (O.R. 3.0), and both U.S. and foreign sexual contacts (O.R. 6). Heavy drinking was more common among the controls (36% vs. 19%) and light/moderate drinking was more common among cases (24% vs. 17.4%). Logistic regression sub-analysis of 9-15 month SCW cases, showed light/moderate alcohol users at increased risk (O.R. 1.6), as were moderate/heavy users (O.R. 2.6), while heavy alcohol use was protective (O.R. 0.7). STI, risky sexual practices, and moderate alcohol use are important risk factors for HIV infection. Educational efforts must engage men in the Navy to reduce their alcohol consumption and risky sexual practices, especially limiting their number of partners and using condoms consistently.

Listen to a short interview with Matthew Connelly Host: Chris Gondek - Producer: Heron & Crane Fatal Misconception is the disturbing story of our quest to remake humanity by policing national borders and breeding better people. As the population of the world doubled once, and then again, well-meaning people concluded that only population control could preserve the quality of life. This movement eventually spanned the globe and carried out a series of astonishing experiments, from banning Asian immigration to paying poor people to be sterilized. Supported by affluent countries, foundations, and non-governmental organizations, the population control movement experimented with ways to limit population growth. But it had to contend with the Catholic Church's ban on contraception and nationalist leaders who warned of race suicide. The ensuing struggle caused untold suffering for those caught in the middle--particularly women and children. It culminated in the horrors of sterilization camps in India and the one-child policy in China. Matthew Connelly offers the first global history of a movement that changed how people regard their children and ultimately the face of humankind. It was the most ambitious social engineering project of the twentieth century, one that continues to alarm the global community. Though promoted as a way to lift people out of poverty--perhaps even to save the earth--family planning became a means to plan other people's families. With its transnational scope and exhaustive research into such archives as Planned Parenthood and the newly opened Vatican Secret Archives, Connelly's withering critique uncovers the cost inflicted by a humanitarian movement gone terribly awry and urges renewed commitment to the reproductive rights of all people.

Welfare Racism analyzes the impact of racism on US welfare policy. Through historical and present-day analysis, the authors show how race-based attitudes, policy making, and administrative policies have long had a negative impact on public assistance programs. The book adds an important and controversial voice to the current welfare debates surrounding the recent legilation that abolished the AFDC.

For over half a century, policymakers committed to population control have perpetrated a gigantic, costly, and inhumane fraud upon the human race. They have robbed people of the developing countries of their progeny and the people of the developed world of their pocketbooks. Determined to stop population growth at all costs, those Mosher calls "population controllers" have abused women, targeted racial and religious minorities, undermined primary health care programs, and encouraged dictatorial actions if not dictatorship. They have skewed the foreign aid programs of the United States and other developed countries in an anti-natal direction, corrupted dozens of well-intentioned nongovernmental organizations, and impoverished authentic development programs. Blinded by zealotry, they have even embraced the most brutal birth control campaign in history: China's infamous one-child policy, with all its attendant horrors. There is no workable demographic definition of "overpopulation." Those who argue for its premises conjure up images of poverty - low incomes, poor health, unemployment, malnutrition, overcrowded housing to justify anti-natal programs. The irony is that such policies have in many ways caused what they predicted - a world which is poorer materially, less diverse culturally, less advanced economically, and plagued by disease. The population controllers have not only studiously ignored mounting evidence of their multiple failures; they have avoided the biggest story of them all. Fertility rates are in free fall around the globe. Movements with billions of dollars at their disposal, not to mention thousands of paid advocates, do not go quietly to their graves. Moreover, many in the movement are not content to merely achieve zero population growth, they want to see negative population numbers. In their view, our current population should be reduced to one or two billion or so. Such a goal would keep these interest groups fully employed. It would also have dangerous consequences for a global environment.
