HIV Infection | The Next Wave
A Yale University Study

Teens and young adults have higher rates of new HIV infections than older age groups, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. In the U.S., people ages 13-29 represented 39 percent of all new infections in 2009; African American women are at higher risk than their Caucasian peers. In Connecticut, people younger than 30 have become increasingly more likely to be diagnosed with HIV. 

In 2002, they accounted for just 13 percent of new infections. In 2012, that age group represented roughly 30 percent. That same year, African Americans represented just over 40 percent of newly diagnosed HIV patients in all age groups.
