After taking a dip in 2003, HIV diagnoses were back up in 2004. There were 103 persons diagnosed in 2004, very close to our ten-year average of 100 cases per year. In 2003, there were 91 diagnoses. The increase in 2004 was limited to one demographic group: white, U.S.-born males. Most of these were men who have sex with men, but there were also small increases among injection-drug-using men and those without a known risk. Their median age was 41, slightly older than the overall median age of 38 years. Eighty percent were residents of the 10 most populous counties in Iowa, particularly the counties of Polk, Pottawattamie, Johnson, Linn, Scott, Story, and Woodbury.
