Opinion: "What We Need to Do to Fight HIV" in Wisconsin

February 11, 2013

The latest statistics show the incidence of HIV among gay men in Wisconsin was higher in 2011 than when the disease peaked in 1987. The category with the highest infection rate: young black men who have sex with men who may not identify themselves as gay.

(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, James E. Causey, 2/8)
