Estimate of Annual HIV Incidence Increases Significantly; New Estimate Will Show Need For a National AIDS Strategy
Date:8/1/2008

WASHINGTON, Aug. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) long anticipated revised estimate of annual new cases of HIV infections will be revealed on Aug. 3 in a paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

"Stopping the spread of HIV and treating all people living with HIV must be a high priority for our leaders and the American public," Interrante added.

"The higher estimate of annual new HIV infections does not mean that HIV prevention does not work. What is failing is national leadership to fund and support sound, scientifically effective HIV prevention programs," said AIDS Action Deputy Executive Director Ronald Johnson.

Federal funding for domestic HIV prevention has not kept pace with the epidemic, especially given the crisis of HIV/AIDS in communities of color, particularly in African American and Hispanic communities and the high impact of HIV on gay men and men who have sex with
