Fwd: [ex-gay] HIV surveillance data among Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) and Injection Drug Users (IDU)


Since the beginning of the HIV epidemic in the United States, men have accounted for the largest proportion of cases, and the large majority of those men have been gay, bisexual, and other MSM. In 2010, MSM accounted for 63% of all new HIV infections, and MSM with a history of injection drug use (MSM-IDU) accounted for an additional 4% of new infections and IDU (male and female) accounted for approximately 9% of all new infections. At the end of 2009, an estimated 56% of persons living with an HIV diagnosis in the U.S. were MSM or MSM-IDU and 16% were IDU.
