Scientists have observed a rise in the number of HIV/AIDS cases among adults 50 and older over the course of the epidemic.

Diane Zablotsky, UNC Charlotte Associate Professor of Sociology, pointed out that “historically when you looked at AIDS diagnoses people 50 and older accounted for 10 percent of all diagnoses”, and the number was up to 12.5 by 2007 in America. Zablotsky laid the blame behind the upsurge on the lack of talk about HIV/AIDS prevention and transmission.
