The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that new HIV infections among men who have sex with men (MSM) ages 13 to 24 grew by 22 percent from 2008 to 2010. The CDC cites “the high proportion of young MSM (especially young MSM of color) who are unaware of their infection” as a factor contributing to the rise of infection in this population, a factor Greater Than AIDS is taking head-on with #SpeakOutHIV.
