One-Third of HIV-Infected Gay Men Have Unsafe Sex: CDC
Date:12/3/2007

than their white counterparts.

In another CDC study, researchers examined data from 53 studies conducted from 1980 to 2006. The studies compared the safe-sex behaviors of black and white gay and bisexual men.

"Across all studies, there were no overall differences [by race] in reported unprotected receptive sex or any unprotected anal intercourse," said the study's lead author, Gregorio Millet, a behavioral scientist at the CDC. In fact, "among young MSM -- those ages 15 to 29 -- African-Americans were one third less likely than whites to report in engaging in unprotected anal intercourse," he said.

Black gay or bisexual men were also "36 percent less likely than whites to report having as many sex partners as white MSM," he added. Blacks in the study were also less likely to use recreational drugs, such as methamphetamine or cocaine, compared to whites.

Other studies presented at the teleconference showed close correlations between recent spikes in syphilis and gonorrhea among gay and bisexual men and rates of HIV infection in this population.

And, in a finding that puzzled experts, another study showed that circumcision -- long thought to reduce HIV infectivity -- does not help shield black or Latino men from the virus.

All of the new statistics confirm that much more must be done, the experts said.

"This shows that prevention messages have to be continually refreshed, and responsive to those who are younger," Mayer said.
