HIV/AIDS Kills More Than Double The People Than Do Cars – Suicide – Violence – & War

Leading Cause Of HIV Transmission Is By Male To Male Contact.

Over half (63%) of adult and adolescent males living with an HIV diagnosis in 2008 became infected through male-to-male sexual contact.

Deaths among people diagnosed with AIDS

In 1981, the first cases of what is now known as AIDS were reported in the U.S. During the 1980s there was a rapid increase in the number of reported AIDS cases and AIDS deaths. Cases peaked with the 1993 expansion of the case definition,4 and then declined. The most dramatic drops in both cases and deaths began in 1996, with the widespread use of combination antiretroviral therapy.

People with AIDS are now surviving longer and are contributing to a steady increase in the overall number of people living with AIDS. This trend will continue as long as the number of new diagnoses exceeds the number of people dying each year.

The number of deaths of persons with an AIDS diagnosis has stabilised in recent years at around 16,500-18,000 per year. (Deaths of persons with an AIDS diagnosis may be due to any cause).

Since the beginning of the epidemic, an estimated 617,025 people with AIDS have died in the U.S.
