  • Description:
    "More than 56,000 people in the US are newly infected with HIV each year--about one new person gets infected every 9_ minutes. In 2009, 82.9 million people reported that they had ever been tested for HIV. This is 11.4 million more people since 2006, an average 3.8 million more people getting tested for the first time each year. Even so, more than half of Americans aged 18-64 have never been tested for HIV. At least 1 in 3 Americans who test positive for HIV is tested too late to get the full advantage of treatment." -p. 1
