Most AIDS Cases in San Francisco Are People 50 and Older
For the first time in the HIV epidemic in San Francisco, people 50 and older accounted for more than half of the city’s AIDS cases in 2010, the Bay Area Reporter (BAR) reports. Data from the city’s HIV Epidemiology Section show that San Francisco had 9,734 people living with AIDS in 2010 and that 5,153 of them were people 50 or older. Despite the aging HIV population, the city has allocated no programs or dollars to specifically serve this demographic, and only a few support groups target this group.
