Today, more than 6,300 people are living with HIV/AIDS in Wisconsin and it is estimated that an additional 1,500 are undiagnosed and living with HIV.  As the number of people affected by this complex disease continues to increase, so does the demand for quality health care services.

By registering for AIDS Walk Wisconsin today and raising pledges, you help those living with HIV live long, healthly lives.  You guarantee that HIV care and treatment is available to all people living with the disease, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation or economic status.

In 2010, the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW) - the state's largest and fastest growing provider of HIV medical, dental and mental health care - experienced a significant spike in demand for all services, including a 20% increase in new patients to the ARCW Medical Center.
