HIV on the rise

Friday is World Aids Day and in advance of that, the Centers for Disease Control released a new study documenting a rise in HIV infection among America's young people.

The CDC collected data on 13 to 24 year olds and found that they accounted for 25% of the new cases in 2010.

More than half of young people infected with HIV were unaware of their infection.

Only 13% of high school students have been tested.
