More than 29 people die of AIDS due to late detection.

More than 29 patients died in Japan in 2003 because of late detection of HIV. Many sufferers were not aware they had the disease until symptoms presented. Many died of their severe symptoms, others died because they had to discontinue medication due to side effects. However, it is believed the number may be much higher than this because of methods of reporting.
