GAY MEN 44 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO GET HIV

GMHC - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new statistics showing that men who have engaged sexually with another man within the last five years are over 44 times more likely than other men to contract HIV, and over 40 times more likely than women to contract HIV. Further, these men were over 46 times more likely to contract syphilis than other men, and over 71 times more likely than women to contract syphilis.

Men who have sex with men comprised 57% of people newly infected with HIV in 2006, according to the CDC, even though MSM are only 2% of the adult population. However, research shows that most gay men practice safer sex, and gay male couples are twice as likely as heterosexual couples to practice safer sex.
