The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded $55 million for expanding HIV prevention targeted toward young gay and bisexual men of color, transgender youth of color, and their partners, according to a CDC statement. Thirty-four community-based organizations in the most-affected populations in the United States will receive about $300,000 per year over five years. Recent data show that young men who have sex with men (MSM) of color are at particularly high HIV risk.
