June 2003

PWAs in the U.S. are living longer than ever, and the number of people with an AIDS diagnosis has risen for the first time since 1993—to 816,149—the CDC reports. Data from 25 states suggest an (underwhelming) 1 percent boost from 2000 to 2001. This doesn’t include numbers from states—like New York and California—that have 75 percent of AIDS cases, but these states have better prevention and treatment awareness, so the overall increase could slow by 2004, when all states should be reporting complete data. The CDC surprisingly dismissed fears that drug resistance is causing a spike in AIDS cases as more HIVers experience treatment failure—but it did warn that rising HIV rates may be a culprit if the AIDS stats keep going up. “It’s only a single point in time, and we can’t say it’s a trend,” said Ronald Valdiserri of the CDC’s National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention. “But it is very worrying.”
