HIV Rates Go Down for Black Women, While MSM Rates Go Up
In 2012, one Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study served some encouraging news. Good news: Between 2008 and 2010, HIV rates among Black women had gone down 21 percent. But among men who have sex with men (MSM), infection rates were up 22 percent and young Black MSM made up 55 percent of new infections among young gay men.
