    A Decade of Overall Declines -- Mixed Picture among Gay, Bisexual, and other Men who have Sex with Men -- Recent Years Reveal First Signs of Slowing Diagnoses Among Black Gay and Bisexual Men -- Narrowing Gaps by Race and Ethnicity -- Beyond Diagnoses: Regional Disparities in the Epidemic -- Accelerating Progress -- Monitoring the Impact of HIV through Diagnoses.

    More than three decades after the first cases of AIDS were diagnosed in the United States, HIV continues to pose a substantial threat to the health and well-being of Americans. According to the most recent CDC data, roughly 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and about 40,000 infections are diagnosed each year.

    However, trends in HIV diagnoses over the past decade show promising signs of progress—though progress has been uneven and certain groups, particularly gay and bisexual men and African Americans, continue to be the most affected. Recent data also show uneven progress across states, with noteworthy gaps in prevention and care—especially in the South.

    A CDC analysis released in December 2015 examines HIV diagnoses overall and in key populations from 2005-2014 and 2010-2014, providing both a decade- long perspective and a view of more recent trends. A second analysis released at the same time exposes regional disparities.
