(Bob Hague, WRN) Living with HIV is a reality for thousands of Wisconsinites.
According to recent data from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, 6,926 people were living with HIV in Wisconsin at the end of 2020. Two-hundred-eight people in Wisconsin were newly diagnosed with HIV in 2020.
Most new HIV diagnoses were identified in Milwaukee, Dane, and Brown counties, the three most populous. Wednesday was World Aids Day, an annual show of support for people living with HIV and remembrance of those who’ve lost their lives to end stage HIV.
