AETC Short Bites: HIV in the Southeast U.S.

Tuesday, October 9, 2018


From the AETC ShareSpot of October 4 by Mark S. Schweizer, DDS, MPH, Southeast AETC

"Southern states today account for an estimated 44 percent of all people living with an HIV diagnosis in the U.S.,[1] despite having only about one-third (37%) of the overall U.S. population. Diagnosis rates for people in the South are higher than for Americans overall. Eight of the 10 states with the highest rates of new HIV diagnoses are in the South, as are the 10 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) with the highest rates." Get more information from the Share Spot Blog.
