  • Long-Term Survivors With HIV Deal with Numerous Struggles

    This year, 2019, is the first time when nearly half of all people living with HIV in the U.S. are over 50 years old. By 2030 that number is expected to increase to 70 percent.  June 5 is HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day. Long-term survivors are those who were diagnosed before most of the breakthroughs for HIV treatments.
