Even with the advances we’ve made fighting the virus over the years, America is still facing a major ongoing HIV epidemic, with around 50,000 new infections per year.

New Jersey ranks among the top ten states with the highest rate of HIV infection in the country.

There are currently around 1.1 million people living with HIV in the United States with 16 percent unaware of their infection. Since the beginning of the HIV and AIDS epidemic, 600,000 people have died of AIDS-related illnesses in America.
