The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention released shocking numbers of new HIV infections in the U.S. on Wednesday — reporting that while gay and bisexual men make up two percent of the U.S. population, they accounted for 61 percent of new HIV infections in 2009.
Even more shocking were the numbers of young (ages 13-29) black gay and bisexual men — the number of new HIV infections in this population jumped 48 percent from 2006-2009. In 2006, the numbers were 4,400; in 2009, the recorded new HIV infections within this same group rose to 6,500.
AID Atlanta has a "From Where I Stand" social marketing campaign about how to prevent HIV and sent out a video via email to supporters today in light of the new CDC statistics. This video focuses on black gay men.
