Health Indicator Report of New HIV/AIDS Diagnoses

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the body's immune system. If HIV is not treated, it can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Currently, there is no effective cure. However, with proper medical care HIV can be controlled. People with HIV who get effective HIV treatment can live long, healthy lives and protect their partners.
In 2019, more new HIV/AIDS diagnoses were observed among those aged 25-44 years. Within this group, more new HIV/AIDS diagnoses among males were for those aged 25-34 years while more new HIV/AIDS diagnoses among females were for those aged 35-44 years. New HIV/AIDS diagnoses were also seen among transwomen aged 15-24 years.

Notes

This is Healthy People 2030 goal HIV-03 - Reduce the number of new diagnoses among persons 13 years and older. Data for ages 13 years and above. **Number is too small to report; statistically unstable. "Transwomen" refers to transgender male-to-female.
