HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day

September 18

Aging is a part of life: HIV doesn't have to be.

In the US, 1 in 4 adults living with HIV are 50 or older.

1 in 6 new HIV diagnoses occur among those 50 and older.

 

National Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

September 27

If current diagnosis rates continue, 1 in 6 men who have sex with men (MSM) will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, including 1 in 2 black/African American MSM, 1 in 4 Hispanic/Latino MSM, and 1 in 11 white MSM.

These rates are not inevitable; we have more prevention tools than ever before.
