HIV Incidence: Estimated Annual Infections in the U.S., 2010-2016

February 27, 2019 — Progress in HIV prevention has stalled; need for immediate action — ‘Ending the Epidemic: A Plan for America’

The dramatic decline in annual HIV infections has stopped and new infections has stabilized in recent years, according to a CDC report published today. The report provides the most recent data on HIV trends in America from 2010 to 2016. It shows that after about five years of substantial declines, the number of HIV infections began to level off in 2013 at about 39,000 infections per year. In addition to the overall trend, the new report examines HIV infections among multiple subgroups. Data indicate that annual HIV infections declined in some populations, but increased in others. CDC estimates that the decline in HIV infections has plateaued because effective HIV prevention and treatment are not adequately reaching those who could most benefit from them.
