Despite new therapies, people with HIV still develop AIDS and more than 14,000 people with AIDS still die each year in the United States. The Center for Disease Control estimates that some 56,300 Americans become infected each year, and of those Americans, 1 in 5 have never been tested and is therefore unaware of his or her status.
