September 18 is National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2014, an estimated 45% of Americans living with diagnosed HIV were aged 50 and older. September 18 is National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day—a day to call attention to the challenges of HIV prevention, testing, treatment, and care that older Americans face. For example, although HIV risk factors are similar for all adults, older adults may be less aware of these factors and the importance of testing to detect HIV in its earliest stages.
