CDC: New HIV Cases Down for Black Women, Up for Young Gay and Bisexual Men

There were about 47,500 new HIV cases in 2010 in the United States, according to new analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition to the new 2010 estimates, the CDC report—Estimated HIV Incidence Among Adults and Adolescents in the United States, 2007–2010—also adjusts previous estimates for 2007 through 2009. There were 53,200 new HIV cases in 2007, 47,500 in 2008 and 45,000 in 2009. The adjusted estimates continue to support an overall trend of about 50,000 new HIV cases a year since the mid 1990s. African Americans, Latinos and gay and bisexual men continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV. Between 2008 and 2010, black women saw a decrease of new HIV cases by 21 percent (from 7,700 to 6,100) and young gay and bisexual men ages 13 to 24 saw a 22 percent increase (from 7,200 to 8,800).

The way the CDC chart is shown MSM is broken down to white black and latino. if you add them up its over half the new infections. Gay men r killing gay men, and the governments does not have televised, warnings. This ends up to genocide of young gay men, who are isolated, and do not get the warnings. Our government has failed us.
