Montana: Missoula County Has 12 New HIV Cases in Five Months

April 20, 2012

Responding to 12 new HIV cases in five months, Missoula County health officials have formed a coalition to raise awareness about HIV prevention and to encourage more people to be tested. The cases involve men ages 19-65 who contracted the virus through unprotected sex, the Missoula Health Department said. Some were infected through casual encounters, while others presumed they were in monogamous relationships. Women also were exposed, said Christa Weathers, director of Open Aid Alliance, an AIDS service organization. No new cases have been confirmed since late March.
