AIDS Cases Continue to Drop in New York City
New York City AIDS cases have continued to drop during the past eight years, The New York Times reports. A new report shows the number of adults with newly diagnosed AIDS dropped to 2,225 in fiscal year 2011, which ended on June 30. That total was 25 percent lower than the total for fiscal year 2010, which had 2,969 new cases, and 47 percent lower than in fiscal year 2003, which had 4,164 new cases. New infections were most common among men younger than 30—especially black and Latino men who have sex with men—as well as black women and to a lesser extent Latinas. The number of newly diagnosed HIV cases has also declined, although those numbers were not in the report.
