    • Description:
      In 2015, youth aged 13 to 24a accounted for 22% of all new HIV diagnoses in the United States. Most of those new diagnoses among youth (81%) occurred among gay and bisexual males. Young black/African Americanb and Hispanic/Latinoc gay and bisexual males are especially affected; however, we are seeing progress. Estimated annual HIV infections fell 18% among young gay and bisexual males from 2008 to 2014. Youth with HIV are the least likely out of any age group to be linked to care and have a suppressed viral load (that is, having a very low level of the virus in the body, which helps the person stay healthy and greatly reduces the risk of transmitting HIV to others). Addressing HIV in youth requires that we give young people the information and tools they need to reduce their risk, make healthy decisions, and get treatment and care if needed. cdc-hiv-youth.pdf
