World AIDS Day

Posted by wlpo on November 27, 2011

Another World AIDS Day approaches this Thursday, December 1. The Centers for Disease Control is concerned that most of the new HIV infections in the U.S. involve people under 30 years of age. In a three year period ending in 2009, the CDC determined the HIV incidence rate as twenty-one percent higher for Americans ages 13 to 29. Improvement to prescription drugs and long-term care plans have helped address the problem of AIDS in the last 30 years. The non-profit “Act against AIDS”, launched by the CDC encourages people, especially under age 30, to get tested for AIDS. Persons can find information at act against aids dot org.
