Addressing the HIV Crisis Among Men Who Have Sex with Men
High Burden of HIV
MSM account for an estimated 42 percent of total HIV infections in the United States each year, and approximately 60 percent of annual infections among men.
Latino MSM also face a high risk of infection, with reported AIDS incidence rates (cases per 100,000) more than 2.5 times that of white MSM.(13) CDC's Young Men's Survey indicated that 15 percent of Latino MSM were HIV-positive before age 30, with 3.5 percent of 23- to 29-year-olds infected each year.(12)
