    Abstract

    Among MSM in 2009, white MSM represented the largest number of new HIV infections (11,400),followed closely by black/African American MSM(10,800) and Hispanic MSM (6,000). Among all men in 2009, MSM accounted for 86% of new infections among white men, 73% of new infectionamong black/African American men and 81% of new infections among Hispanic men. Young black/African American MSM aged 13-29 are especially affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. While HIV incidence was relatively stable among MSM overall from 2006 through 2009, CDC estimates that new HIV infections among black/African American MSM aged 13 to 29 increased 48% during that four-year time period, with a statistically significant 12.2% estimated annual percentage increase.
