The latest data I can find is from the end of 2003, so the numbers will be slightly higher today. The prevalence of HIV positive individuals is estimated to be between 900,000 and 1 million people in the United States (many do not know they have the disease, so that's why there is only an estimate). The prevalence of patients with AIDs in the United States is just over 400,000. There are about 45,000 new cases of AIDS each year.

First let me clarify that it was not AIDS itself that spread rapidly in the 1980s it was the virus that causes AIDS, HIV, that actually spread. The reason that HIV spread so f…ast in the 1980's was a combination of a lack of understanding of the disease by the medical and scientific professionals of the time, as well as stigma and ignorance that was indirectly emphasized by society as well as the Reagan Administration. When the first AIDS cases were first diagnosed in 1981 information on the structure and function of the HIV virus was unavailable to medical professionals, much less to the general public. The public was not aware exactly how it was spread and because it was isolated to only a handful of cases, the public continued to partake in risky behaviors that are now known to heighten your chance of contracting HIV. (i.e sharing needles, having unprotected sex) Furthermore, the patients of the first diagnosed cases of HIV/AIDS were almost exclusively gay men and with no other information available at the time, the public incorrectly assumed that the HIV/AIDS was a disease that was confined that those of homosexual orientation. This, combined with a non responsive federal government as far as funds and distribution of information concerning the disease all contributed to the rapid spread of HIV/AIDS in the 1980s.
I know for certain that Canada had helped, and Britain had taken part in it. But I'm not sure about any others, sorry. Hope I helped
The US-Japan Security Treaty of 1960 was pivotal during the post-WWII era. Provisions there-in state that Japan is to stay out of US airspace and waterspace during an attack;… it also defines a mutual agreement to defend the islands in the event of an attack. Perhaps it is common knowledge, perhaps not – Americans traveling in Japan, in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not extended some services there. Today, U.S. – Japan relations are in great debate in academic circles; even though this is true, college students do not have an influence on U.S. – Japan relations. I imagine there’s things that all of us as Americans can do to help. This is history – some things are advantageous to talk about, and then there is information best left to Research.

Yes, but the drug manufactures will ensure that the drugs will only work on US citizens. People from other countries can take it, but it won't work. Interestingly enough, peop…le from other countries can even come over to the United States and take it, but it won't work. The drug will sense that they are not a US citizen. Amazing! Isn't it?
New York State by a longshot. Mainly in the NYC area.
During the 1970s.
In the United States, there were approximately 175,000 cases of breast cancer in 1999 with more than 43,000 deaths. Breast cancer accounts for 30% of all cancer diagnosed in A…merican women and for 16% of all cancer deaths.
Only 100-200 cases of parrot fever are reported each year in the United States. It is possible, however, that the illness is more common since it is easily confused with other… types of influenza or pneumonia.
Russia does not give foreign aid to the usa. In fact Russia killed most or all of it's foreign aid back in the 90's with the collapse of the Soviet Union and has just recently… started a foreign aid program again.
