How Many?
May 6, 2003

How many people in this country are HIV positive, and from those, how many are actively treating their HIV with anti-retroviral medications?

Response from Dr. Young

According the my lastest numbers (rough estimates), there are about 1 million infected individuals in the US. Of these about 600,000 are under medical care and 360,000 are receiving medications. -BY
