Chart: HIV and Chronic Disease in the United States, Center for HIV Law and Policy (2011)
This chart presents data on the prevalence, impact and treatment of HIV infection with parallel data on chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and Hepatitis C. This chart allows for the comparison of HIV to other chronic diseases that are common in high-income countries and that require lifelong clinical management. This data is not intended to diminish the personal and societal consequences of HIV infection, but to draw awareness to the equal or greater toll of other chronic diseases.
