In 2021, there were 501 new HIV diagnoses. The Centers for Disease Control states in the Nevada State Health Profile that Nevada ranked 21st in the nation for number of HIV diagnoses in 2015.

The only way to know for sure whether you have HIV is to get tested.  The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. Knowing your HIV status gives you powerful information to help you take steps to keep you and your partner healthy.
