Infections Among Young Black MSM Went Way Up

HIV rates among Black gay and bisexual men skyrocketed: Up 48 percent among young MSM ages 13-19 between 2006-2009, says a report conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Other 2013 studies pointed to lack of mental health programs for MSM, having older sexual partners and the fact that Black gay men mostly have sex with other Black gay men for this increase in infections.
