Nearly 35,000 U.S. teenagers now have AIDS. Each year, some 1,700 young people aged 13 to 24 are diagnosed with AIDS. Far more have been diagnosed with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), and an undetermined number have the virus and do not yet know. This up-to-date book on AIDS includes information on causes and symptoms of HIV/AIDS, treatment and prevention, and ongoing research.
