It is estimated that sexual transmission accounts for 32,000 of the 40,000 new infections each year. Conservative estimates based on the changes in behavior observed once people find out they are infected with HIV indicate that the 25% of people who are unaware that they are infected account for at least 54%, and potentially as much as 70%, of the new sexually transmitted infections each year. The transmission rate among those who don’t know they are infected is 3.5 times higher than for people who know about their HIV infection. The importance of getting these individuals tested and into care that includes both treatment and prevention interventions is critical.
