"Improving health outcomes for Latinos living with HIV infection is necessary to achieve national HIV prevention goals in the United States. "CDC researchers analyzed HIV surveillance data from 37 states and Washington, D.C., to determine recent HIV care outcomes among Latinos. Researchers found that 75 percent of Latinos ages 13 and older with diagnosed HIV infection in 2015 were linked to care within one month of diagnosis. Among Latinos ages 13 and older living with diagnosed HIV at year-end (2014) in the 37 states and Washington, D.C.:
