National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

September 27, 2015


Gay and bisexual men are more severely affected by HIV than any other group in the United States. This fact explains why September 27 is designated National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2013 in the United States, gay and bisexual men accounted for 65% of the 47,352 estimated HIV diagnoses among all people receiving an HIV diagnosis that year. In the same year, gay and bisexual men accounted for 55% of the estimated number of persons diagnosed with AIDS among all adults and adolescents in the United States.
