25% of HIV-Infected Americans Don't Know They Have It
More than a million Americans are believed to be living with the virus that causes AIDS, the government said Monday in a report that reflects both victory and failure at combating the disease. While better medicines are keeping more people with HIV alive, government health officials have failed to "break the back" of the AIDS epidemic by their stated goal of 2005. This is believed to be the first time the 1 million mark has been passed since the height of the epidemic in the 1980s.
Even Americans, with the army of news sources open to them, are ignorant or scared of the FACT of HIV/AIDS.
