  • More than 35 million people now live with HIV/AIDS and
    3.3 million of them are under the age of 15.
  • In 2012, an estimated 2.3 million people were newly
    infected with HIV and it is in fact that every day, nearly
    6,300 people contract HIV - nearly 262 every hour. Also, in
    the same year, 1.6 million people died from AIDS.
  • There are approximately 1.1 million people living with
    HIV/AIDS in the U.S., and almost 1 in 6 of them is unaware
    of their infection.
  • Since the start of the AIDS epidemic, 1.7 million Americans
    have been infected with HIV and more than 650,000 have died
    from it.
  • An estimated 50,000 new HIV infections occur in the
    U.S. each year.
  • Men who have sex with men (MSM) account for the majority
    of new HIV/AIDS diagnoses although MSM comprise only around
    4% of the U.S. male population.
  • New HIV diagnoses among MSM were more than 44 times
    higher than among other men and more than 40 times higher
    than women in 2008. By race, blacks/African Americans face
    the most severe burden of HIV.
  • It is best to contemplate serious matters, particularly
    diseases such as AIDS. Awareness, motivation and a better
    perspective of things can provide answers to these problems.
