The latest CDC estimates of new HIV infections (HIV incidence) in the United States indicate that HIV remains a serious health problem, with an estimated 47,500 people becoming newly infected with the virus in the United States in 20101. The data are included in a new CDC report, Estimated HIV incidence among adults and adolescents in the United States, 2007-2010, which includes new HIV incidence estimates for 2010 and updates previously published estimates for 2007 through 20092. HIV incidence has remained relatively stable at about 50,000 infections per year since the mid-1990s3. According to the new analysis, there were 53,200 infections in 2007; 47,500 in 2008; 45,000 in 2009; and 47,500 in 2010. Certain groups, including African Americans, Latinos, and gay and bisexual men of all races/ethnicities, continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV.
