Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

There was a time when health headlines were dominated by HIV and AIDS.

Today, you almost hear nothing about the disease.

WBTV's Christine Nelson found alarming numbers on the thousands of people contracting HIV and AIDS in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.

Plus, the problem is affecting one particular segment of the Charlotte community far greater than others.

We're speaking to two people with HIV/AIDS who represent those statistics and see how they're living day-to-day with a disease that could possibly one day cost them their lives.

You can watch this report Thursday night at 11 p.m. on WBTV News.
