According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2010, 44% of new HIV-infections were among Men who have sex with Men (MSM) aged 55 or older. 

According to the CDC, older Americans are MORE likely than younger Americans to have a late-stage HIV diagnosis. 

In 2013, 1 in 6 new HIV diagnoses in the U.S. were among persons aged 50 or older. 

About 1 in 4 adults in the US who are living with HIV infection are aged 50 or older.

30% of HIV-positive people over 50 had two or more chronic conditions, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD).

The HIV-aging epidemic is caused by risky behaviors that are also found among younger adults.
