HIV Disease

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. This is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. While there is no cure for HIV, if individuals are diagnosed early and begin treatment appropriately, they may live with the illness, managing it as a chronic disease. 

Great progress has been made in preventing and treating HIV, however there is still much to do.  According to the Centers for Disease Control nearly 48,000 people in the United States were newly infected with HIV during 2013 and almost 1 in 8 (12.8%) are unaware of their infection.    In Mecklenburg County, more than 5,300 persons are living with HIV infection and as many as 700 more may be infected but unaware of their status.
