MEN AND HIV

Everyone is at risk for HIV, but not everyone’s risk level is the same. Men who have sex with men (MSM), regardless of how they identify their sexual orientation, are the group most affected by HIV. However, unprotected sex is the greatest single HIV risk factor. According to the CDC, 25% of new HIV infections can be traced to heterosexual contact. Regardless of orientation, if you are going to be sexually active, it’s important to take steps to reduce your risk of acquiring HIV. For those who choose to be sexually active, the CONSISTENT AND CORRECT use of latex or polyurethane condoms remains the most effective method of prevention.

The following links will provide you with information on HIV among men including information and resources to help in preventing the spread of HIV among men.
