Study: Global HIV Rates Among MSM Are Soaring
Global HIV rates among men who have sex with men (MSM) are
soaring, according to a Johns Hopkins/World Bank study of HIV epidemics among
MSM worldwide in 2010. According to a statement from the Global Forum on MSM
& HIV (MSMGF), HIV prevalence rates among MSM were as high as 21.4 percent
in Malawi, 13.8 percent in Peru and 23 percent in Thailand. The study also
showed that increasing HIV care among MSM would lead to overall declines in HIV
epidemics among general populations.
