Estimated Rate of New HIV Infections, 2009, by Gender and Race/Ethnicity: This graph shows that in the US in 2009 the rate of new HIV infections among black males was 103.9 cases per 100,000 population, the rate for Hispanic males was 39.9 cases per 100,000 population, and the rate for white males was 15.9 cases per 100,000 population. The rate among black females was 39.7 cases per 100,000 population, the rate for Hispanic females was 11.8 cases per 100,000 population, and the rate among white women was 2.6 cases per 100,000 population.Estimated rate of New HIV Infections, 2009, by Gender and Race/Ethnicity

This graph shows the estimated rate of new HIV infections by gender and race/ethnicity in 2009. It highlights that black women are more affected by HIV than women of all other races, accounting for nearly 60 percent (57 percent) of all new HIV infections among women in 2009. The HIV infection rate among black women was 15 times that of white women (39.7 v. 2.6 per 100,000).

Estimated Number of New HIV Infections among Blacks, 2009, by Transmission Category: This pie chart shows the estimated new HIV infections among African Americans by transmission category for 2009. Men who have sex with men made up 51 percent of new HIV infections followed by heterosexuals who made up 36 percent of new HIV infections (25 percent for heterosexual females and 11 percent for heterosexual males), injection drug users who made up 10 percent of new HIV infections (4 percent for female IDU and 6 percent for male IDU), and MSM-IDU who made up 2 percent of new HIV infections.

This pie chart shows estimated new HIV infections among African Americans by transmission category for 2009. It highlights that a quarter of all new HIV infections among African Americans occurred among heterosexual black women– the second highest proportion after black men who have sex with men.

Estimated Number of New HIV Infections, 2009, for the Most-Affected U.S. Subpopulations: This bar chart shows in 2009 an estimated: 11,400 new HIV infections occurred among white men who have sex with men; 10,800 were among black men who have sex with men; 6,000 were among Hispanic men who have sex with men; 5,400 were among black heterosexual women; 2,400 were among black heterosexual men; 1,700 were among Hispanic heterosexual women; 1,700 were among white heterosexual women; 1,200 were among black, male injection drug users; and 940 were among black, female injection drug users. Estimated New HIV Infections in the US, 2009, for the Most Affected Subpopulations
View High Resolution Version
This bar chart shows those populations who are most affected by HIV in the US based on estimated numbers of new HIV infections for 2009. Black heterosexual women accounted for 5,400 new HIV infections and account for the second greatest number of new HIV infections in the US, after gay and bisexual men of all races.

Estimated New HIV Infections among Heterosexuals, 2009, by Gender and Race/Ethnicity: This graph shows that in the US in 2009, an estimated 12,900 new HIV infections occurred among heterosexuals.  3,590 of those were among males and 8,800 among females.  Among males by race/ethnicity, 2,400 were among blacks, 640 were among Hispanics and 550 were among whites.  Among females by race/ethnicity, 5,400 were among blacks, 1,700 were among Hispanics and 1,700 were among whites.  (Note: This chart includes estimates, by gender, for blacks, Hispanics and whites only.  Note that the total estimated numbers of HIV infections among heterosexuals includes an additional 510 infections.  These represent cases among American Indians/Alaska Natives, Asians, Native Hawaiians/Other Pacific Islanders, and individuals of multiple races.  Specific estimates of HIV incidence in each of these populations could not be reliably estimated due to the relatively small number of HIV infections.)

This graph shows the estimated number of new HIV infections among heterosexuals by gender and race/ethnicity in 2009. In that year, more than twice as many new HIV infections occurred among heterosexual black women than among heterosexual black men (5,400 vs. 2,400).
