Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of HIV/AIDS
Thirty years ago this month, HIV/AIDS was identified as what we know it as today. During this time over 25 million people worldwide have died from HIV/AIDS. Even today, the only “cure” is prevention.
Currently, more than one million people in the United States live with HIV; 21% of those with HIV have yet to be diagnosed and are unaware of their infection. But great strides have been made in HIV prevention and treatment over the past thirty years. In fact, the number of new HIV infections has fallen by more than two thirds since the height of the epidemic.
The CDC is sponsoring a special thirtieth commemoration of HIV/AIDS this summer to help educate people about the impact across our country and the world. Learn more about the commemoration.
