First-ever estimates of transmission at each stage of HIV care reinforce the value of testing and treatment efforts
Today in JAMA Internal Medicine, CDC researchers published the first U.S. estimates of the number of HIV transmissions from people engaged at five consecutive stages of care (including with those who are unaware of their infection, those who are retained in care and those who have their virus under control through treatment), finding more than 90 percent of new HIV infections could be averted by diagnosing people living with HIV and ensuring they receive prompt, ongoing care and treatment. The new analysis reinforces the importance of HIV testing and treatment for protecting the health of people living with HIV and preventing transmission to others.

February 6, 2015 - National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
This National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (observed Saturday, February 7), there are encouraging signs that we are making progress in the fight against HIV among African Americans – but HIV remains a serious health crisis in the black community.
New data released today show that death rates among blacks with HIV declined 28 percent from 2008 to 2012 and nearly half of people reached by CDC’s testing programs in 2013 were black. However, more than a third of people living with HIV in the United States are black, and far too many African Americans with HIV do not get the medical care and treatment they need.
