Georgia has the fifth highest number of HIV/AIDS diagnoses in the country. While the impact is felt across the state, three counties in Atlanta – Fulton, DeKalb and Clayton – have the highest prevalence rates (per 100,000 people) in the state. As is the case nationally, Black residents have been most severely and disproportionately affected, accounting for two thirds (67%) of new diagnoses in Georgia in 2013.
To better understand the views and experiences of Georgians on HIV/AIDS, the Kaiser Family Foundation conducted a representative survey of 556 adults residing in Georgia in the summer of 2015. The survey was conducted as part of a public information partnership with the Georgia Department of Public Health.

More than thirty years into the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and at a time when infections among gay and bisexual men are on the rise in the U.S., a new national survey of gay and bisexual men by the Kaiser Family Foundation finds that though HIV/AIDS is named as the number one health issue facing their population, a majority are not personally concerned about becoming infected, and relatively few report having been tested recently. Only about a quarter know about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and fewer than half are aware that the current guidelines for people with HIV are to start antiretroviral (ARV) treatment as soon as they are diagnosed.
