According to the 2014 figures below (we try update the data as it becomes available from the Florida Department of Health), only 66% of all People Living With HIV/AIDS in our Area 2B (Leon, Taylor, Madison, Jefferson, Gadsden, Liberty, Wakulla and Franklin Counties) are retained in care.
Only 56% are virally suppressed, meaning Treatment as Prevention is effective and they are 96% less likely to be infectious. The other 44% may be infectious.
It is estimated that 12.4% of People Living with HIV in Area 2B do not actually know it. It is a high priority to get these individuals tested and into care.
