HIV/AIDS Statistics for the United States:
What can you do?
Get.Tested. And make sure any, and every, sexual partner you have gets tested, too.
"When I was tested for the second time and found out I was HIV positive, I thought my world was going to collapse and cave in but thankfully this test actually saved my life. The sooner you find out whether you are positive (or negative), the sooner you can start your combination therapy and get the virus under control and live your life normally."
—Andy Bell, of Erasure, who learned he was HIV+ in 1998.
