National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

September 27

Description

National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is an opportunity to focus on the impact of HIV/AIDS on gay and bisexual men.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) theres a disproportionate burden of HIV on gay and bisexual men:

  • In 2014, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men made up an estimated 2% of the U.S. population but accounted for 70% of new HIV infections.
  • Gay and bisexual men accounted for 55% (10,047) of people who received an AIDS diagnosis. Of those men, 39% were African American, 31% were white, and 24% were Hispanic/Latino.

But there is also progress to celebrate: CDC reports that HIV infections are falling among some age and racial/ethnic groups of gay and bisexual men.
