The HIV epidemic in the US doesn’t make headlines much anymore. The infection has faded from front-page coverage mostly for a positive reason: Thanks to drugs developed in the mid-90s, HIV is no longer a death sentence and people with the virus can live long and healthy lives.

In more great news, there’s now a daily pill that acts like an HIV vaccine: the medication PrEP. PrEP was recently endorsed by the US Preventive Services Task Force, a prestigious medical group, as a recommended preventive treatment for all people at risk of HIV.

But these breakthroughs in HIV prevention and treatment are clouded by some sad statistics — too many Americans still get infected, despite advances in prevention. Take a look at the numbers that spell out the story of HIV in America today.
