New CDC analysis finds gaps in care & treatment among gay men with diagnosed HIV
Today, in advance of National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (observed Saturday, September 27), CDC released a new analysis showing that only half (49.5%) of gay and bisexual men diagnosed with HIV in the United States are receiving treatment for their infection. And just 42 percent have achieved viral suppression – meaning their virus is under control at a level that helps keep them healthy and also greatly reduces their risk of transmitting HIV to others.
