What is the ratio of people infected with AIDS
Response from Ms. Breuer
Not all states in the US require that HIV be reported, so our information about rates of HIV infection is statistical. Roughly one in 265 Americans has HIV, but the only "ratio" that matters is the HIV status of the person you're about to have sex with or share needles with. Please don't play the odds. Folks who do have kept our infection rates constant (that is, NOT declining) for ten years.
