WSJ Article Prompts AHF to Renew Call for CDC to Release Stark New HIV Data
Date:12/1/2007

Article Hints CDC's Delay Suggests Dramatic Increase

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A 'Wall Street Journal' article headlined, "Upward Revision of U.S. AIDS Cases Likely" (Marilyn Chase and Betsy McKay, December 1, 2007), in today's paper that suggests a delay by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in releasing its latest data on HIV rates and incidence in the US may support the widespread speculation among AIDS advocates nationwide that the numbers will reflect a stark increase in HIV cases in the US--figures many expect to be up to 50% or more higher than the previous CDC estimate of 40,000 new HIV cases per year.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) will host a media availability Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (Dec. 1, 2, 3) to call on the CDC to immediately release this newest HIV/AIDS data, which the CDC recently stated was submitted to an academic journal and is under, "peer-review to ensure that the methods, emerging data, and conclusions are carefully reviewed for scientific accuracy and rigor ... " AHF's call on the CDC to immediately release the data comes on the eve of the CDC's 2007 National HIV Prevention Conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia starting tomorrow (December 2-5).
