Rate Of HIV Infection Rising In Wisconsin
The AIDS outbreak doesn't get as much public attention as it did in the 80's and 90's, but the rate of infection is growing in Wisconsin and other places.
The head of the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, Mike Gifford, says hundreds of new HIV infections are reported yearly in the state. The number of new cases last year was up 19 per cent from the number reported in 2010.
Gifford supports a call by a national task force to do routine testing for the AIDS virus among patients 15 and older.
