Montana Reports Increase in HIV Diagnoses

June 30, 2009

Nineteen new HIV cases have been reported in Montana so far this year, according to the state Department of Public Health and Human Services. "For the last several years there has been an average of about 20 newly diagnosed cases a year," said Anna Whiting Sorrell, the department's director. "To already have 19 new cases reported this year suggests that people may be increasingly putting themselves at risk." The agency is encouraging Montanans to learn their HIV status.
