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. Of the 400 new cases of HIV reported in the state every year, nearly 31% fall within that vulnerable and very hard-to-reach category. We need action -- now -- to deal with this growing problem.
