The Venezuelan National Statistics Institute (INE) reckons that household poverty in Venezuela will finish this year at 21.2%, that is, a 5.3% drop below 26.5% in 2011, according to INE President Elías Eljuri.

In the meantime, the INE envisages extreme poverty ending at 6.5% in 2012. Last year, it stood at 7%.

The preliminary results stem from the Population and Housing Census, the official added. After January 2013, full data will be available, including additional specifics on structural poverty.

Eljuri pointed to a total population of 28,946,000 inhabitants. "People's growth rate has been declining since 1990, from 2.3% down to 1.5%, that is, people's growth is slower," he explained.

He added that Venezuelans' life expectancy is 75 years of age, on average.

After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
