The miracle of growing old was all but unimaginable for them 30 years ago, at the dawn of the age of AIDS. But today the number of people 50 and older diagnosed with HIV or living with AIDS is booming, both across the country and in Sacramento County, where they account for more than a quarter of the 3,300 known cases.

That percentage is expected to double within the next four years, making older adults America’s fastest growing HIV demographic.
