Blair Underwood to Kick off AHF's U.S. HIV Testing Caravan, Monday June 8th, 11:00 AM (PST)
Date:6/5/2009

he number of new infections in the US is absolutely unacceptable. We have a responsibility to do what we must to help those with HIV know their status and get linked into care."

According to an HIV/AIDS Policy Fact Sheet produced by the Kaiser Family Foundation ("The HIV/AIDS Epidemic in the United States", updated, February, 2009, with statistics through 2007):

  • Ten states account for 71% of AIDS cases reported since the beginning of the epidemic. Nine of these states also rank in the top 10 for newly reported cases. Three of the states that the AHF/Magic Johnson Mobile Testing HIV testing Unit will visit on its tour -- Texas, Florida, and Georgia -- are among these top ten states; together, they account for 21% of the nation's reported AIDS cases through the end of 2007 -- or 216,199 cumulative AIDS cases.

The Kaiser Fact Sheet also pointed out:

  • (AIDS) case rates per 100,000 provide a different measure of the epidemic's impact, since they reflect the concentration of cases after accounting for differences in population size across states. The District of Columbia has the highest AIDS case rate in the nation. Seven of the top 10 states by AIDS case rate are in the South. The AHF/Magic Johnson Mobile HIV Testing Unit tour will travel to and do HIV testing events in five of these Southern states and areas: Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and the District of Columbia.
