MIAMI, FL, October 05, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dating VIP, a global provider of general and niche dating sites aimed at bringing people together, is proud to announce that its newest website, Pos Date, has launched and is already making a difference in HIV dating circles as well as in the lives of HIV positive men and women in the United States and beyond. With a focus on providing a site where those singles with HIV can come together without fear of discrimination or prejudice, Pos Date is taking the HIV positive singles dating market by storm.
While having HIV was once something to be ashamed of, improved testing and awareness has led to a decrease in the number of new HIV cases diagnosed each year. While previously HIV was met with shame and derision, today it no longer holds the social stigma it once did thanks to celebrities like Charlie Sheen admitting they are HIV positive as well as improved treatment options. People with HIV make up approximately one percent of the global population, per Avert--a global resource on HIV and AIDS, and are a valuable share of the advertising market.
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in June 2016, an estimated 1.2 million people in the U.S. are HIV positive. According to the most recent statistics from 2014, while the number of people diagnosed with HIV annually has dropped 19 percent in the past decade (2005-2014), one in eight people don't know they have the virus. Gay and bisexual men are most commonly diagnosed though women are no strangers to HIV too. Statistics show that gay and bisexual men made up 67 percent of those newly diagnosed, heterosexual women made up 19 percent of new cases, heterosexual men were five percent of those diagnosed, and six percent of new cases were attributed to injectable drug users (Source: HIV in the United States: At a Glance).
