Despite overall progress in reducing HIV transmission in the United States, HIV continues to affect some groups more than others due to longstanding and ingrained barriers. Black or African American (hereafter referred to as Black) people account for a higher proportion of new HIV infections, compared to other races and ethnicities. Black people accounted for 13% of the U.S. population but 40% of people with HIV in 2019, according to CDC estimates.
Despite overall progress in reducing new infections among gay and bisexual men, the HIV epidemic continued and was more severe among Black and Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men from 2010-2019.
New HIV infections fell 8% from 2015 to 2019, after a period of general stability. However, addressing continued disparities will be crucial to end the HIV epidemic.
