The most recent North Carolina HIV/STD Surveillance Report discloses that, in the first quarter of 2023, there were 368 cases of HIV/STD statewide, reflecting a 10.3% increase compared to the same period in 2022.
The counties most affected by this surge include Mecklenburg with 84 cases of HIV/STD, Wake with 38, Guildford with 26, Cumberland with 23 and Durham with 17.
A recent study indicates that as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, HIV testing decreased by 97 percent across the U.S. Until now, testing numbers stayed down as half, as positivity rates increased; we urge the community to take action.
Early detection and access to medical care significantly improve the chances of managing the virus and leading a healthy life. Thanks to advancements in medical science, individuals with HIV can now enjoy long and fulfilling lives.
