This quarter, we had 33 diagnoses of HIV infection (regardless of AIDS status), which is a little above our usual pace. Fifteen (45%) received concurrent diagnoses of AIDS. There were 8 persons who converted from HIV to AIDS, for a total of 23 AIDS diagnoses, also a little higher than expected. Of note is an increase in the percentage of HIV and AIDS cases diagnosed among Black, non-Hispanic persons during the 1st quarter of 2005. We also saw a bit of an increase in HIV diagnoses among foreign-born persons. It is too early to identify this as a trend; we’ll keep an eye on these numbers through the rest of the year.
