Surge in New HIV Infections Among Young Black Gay Men Troubling: CDC
Date:8/4/2011

ics comprised 20 percent of new HIV infections in 2009. For Hispanic men the HIV infection rate was 2.5 times greater than among white men. Among Hispanic women the HIV infection rate was four times higher than among white women, the researchers found.

Dr. Margaret A. Fischl, professor of medicine and director of the AIDS Clinical Research Unit and co-director of the University of Miami Developmental Center for AIDS Research, commented that "this trend has been slowly emerging over the past couple of years, so people should not be surprised."

The fact that the rate of new HIV infections has stabilized overall was a "great thing a couple of years ago. Today, it's terrible, because if anything, it should be going down," she said. "We have a lot of work to do, or this epidemic is not going to remain level with new infections; it's going to take off again with increasing rates."
