  • Description:
    Stopping the spread of HIV among gay and bisexual men in the United States is CDC’s highest prevention priority.

    We’ve made tremendous advances in HIV prevention and treatment in the United States over the past 30 years. Yet gay and bisexual men still account for the majority of new HIV infections, and HIV is rebounding in some parts of the gay community – with an especially alarming rise in new infections among young, black men who have sex with men (MSM).

    Confronting this resurgence with new tools and innovative ideas is essential to driving HIV down for good in the United States. There are many new reasons to be optimistic that we can succeed.

    Powerful new HIV prevention tools like pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) have the potential to alter the course of the epidemic. And recent research shows that starting HIV treatment early not only helps people with HIV stay healthy, but can nearly eliminate the risk they will pass the virus to others.

    These new advances have transformed the HIV prevention landscape – as well as CDC’s approach to prevention among gay and bisexual men.
