28% Drop in New HIV Cases in 2018

Gov. Cuomo says figures show the number of new HIV diagnoses has dropped to a new low since the peak of the epidemic.

The governor says New York saw just under 2,500 new HIV cases last year, a 28% drop from 2014.

Cuomo says New York leads the nation for the LGBTQ community, and he is proud of it.

Cuomo's office says 32,000 New Yorkers filled at least one prescription of pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, last year.

That's up 32% from 2017.
