More older adults living with HIV/AIDS

The miracle of growing old was all but unimaginable for them 30 years ago, at the dawn of the age of AIDS. But today the number of people 50 and older diagnosed with HIV or living with AIDS is booming. According to the federal Centers for Disease Control, people who are 50 and older account for more than 15 percent of the nation's new HIV diagnoses. That percentage is expected to double within the next four years, making older adults America's fastest growing HIV demographic.
