According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gay and bisexual men are the population most affected by HIV in the United States. In 2016, gay and bisexual men accounted for 67% of the 40,324 new HIV diagnoses in the United States and 6 dependent areas.
However, there are signs of progress. The CDC reports that new HIV diagnoses have remained stable in recent years among gay and bisexual men overall. CDC data also shows that HIV infections are falling among some age and racial and ethnic groups of gay and bisexual men.
