AIDS ADVOCACY NIGHT 2016.

Educating community through art, culture, and performance.

Since the beginning of the epidemic, almost 71 million people have been infected with the HIV virus and about 34 million people have died of HIV. Globally, 36.9 million [34.3–41.4 million] people were living with HIV at the end of 2014. An estimated 0.8% [0.7-0.9%] of adults aged 15–49 years worldwide are living with HIV, although the burden of the epidemic continues to vary considerably between countries and regions. Sub-Saharan Africa remains most severely affected, with nearly 1 in every 20 adults (4.8%) living with HIV and accounting for nearly 70% of the people living with HIV worldwide. — Global Health Observatory Data, World Health Organization

U.S. HIV Facts at a Glance:

  • More than 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 8 (12.8%) are unaware of their infection.
  • Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM), particularly young black/African American gay men, are most seriously affected by HIV.
  • By race, blacks/African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV.
  • CDC estimates that 1,218,400 persons aged 13 years and older are living with HIV infection, including 156,300 (12.8%) who are unaware of their infection.
