I ve read that 3% of the estimated 1 million people in the US with HIV and/or AIDS are believed to be LTNPs. This would make approximately 30,000 LTNPs.
I ve also read that approximately 1/3 of the 1 million do not know their HIV positive status. This would leave approximately 666,000 who do know they are HIV+.
I have also read that approximately 300,000 take HAART, which leaves 366,000 who know their status but don t take HAART (either they are not on meds yet or decline them). 366,000/30,000 equals between 8% and 10% of those not on HAART and are believed to be LTNPs (not taking into account if any of the estimated people who do not know they are HIV+ are LTNPs).
Where did I get these figures? I can t find the references but will keep looking and confirm the estimates!!!!
