National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day

September 18, 2016


National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day was launched in 2008 to focus attention on HIV-related issues confronting aging adults. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that people aged 55 and older accounted for 24% of the estimated 1.2 million people living with HIV infection in the United States in 2012.

HIV-related challenges facing older Americans include lack of knowledge about HIV and stigma that discourages them from seeking HIV testing and care. In older adults, HIV is too often diagnosed late in the course of the infection, leading to shorter HIV-to-AIDS intervals.
