Approximately 50,000 people in the U.S. become infected with HIV each year and in Florida that’s about 5,000 new infections per year. In preparation for World AIDS Day on December 1st, we’ve assembled a panel of experts from the front lines, who are spreading awareness about the disease. The Florida Department of Health estimates that of the 130,000 people living with HIV/AIDS in Florida, 20-percent of them don’t even know they have the disease.
