  • Description:
    We’ve made tremendous advances in HIV prevention and treatment in the United States over the past 30 years, but these advances are still not reaching everyone in need. Gay and bisexual men represent approximately two percent of the U.S. population, but they accounted for nearly 67 percent of all diagnosed HIV infections in 2014. Diagnosis data from 2005 to 2014 suggest that after years of increasing HIV diagnoses among gay and bisexual men, new diagnoses may finally be slowing down and, for some populations, even declining.

    But driving HIV down for good will require innovative ideas. There are many reasons to be optimistic that we can succeed.

    Powerful 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 transmit the virus to others.

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