Some startling AIDS statistics:

-Around the world, a staggering 2.7 million people were infected in 2007 alone.

-1 new infection every 15 seconds

-Globally, 33 million people are living with HIV infection, most of them in the developing world.

-There are more than two million children living with HIV/AIDS globally and over 90 percent of those children live in Africa and specifically sub-Saharan Africa.

-In the United States, more than 1 million people are living with HIV. And 56,000 more people are infected each year in the U.S., driving HIV prevalence rates in some of our communities to levels that rival those seen in sub-Saharan Africa.
