HIV is an epidemic, increasingly affecting more and more people each and every day. It is estimated that at least one American teenager is infected with HIV every hour of every day. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than one million people are living with HIV in the United States. One in five (21%) of those people living with HIV is unaware of their infection.
