The report says that deaths from HIV per year are 12 percent below what would be expected according to HIV experts.”
“According to this report, only 31.6 percent of the U.S. population will be infected with HIV in 2035. In the year 2000, only 3.4 percent of population was infected.”
But the report also says more than 80 percent of people in the U.S. are living with HIV, and an overwhelming 85% of new HIV cases result from infections among gay and bisexual men and the 1.7 million who are living with HIV in the USA.
The new report says HIV testing rates are not keeping up with demand.
“CDC has made substantial reductions in estimated HIV testing coverage among key clinical settings. Despite the significant public health gains identified in 2011, coverage estimates continue to decrease and there may be significant public health and public safety repercussions from low HIV testing coverage.”
The report says that more than 80% of adults in the United States are infected with HIV, and that between 1990 and 2005, the percentage of age-adjusted HIV incidence in the American population increased by over 1,650%.
The report says that about 70% of HIV infections in the U.S. are among gay and bisexual men. The last decade has seen the greatest growth in HIV infections among gay and bisexual men, because of a higher prevalence of STDs and, in particular, unprotected sex.”
Report finds gay man’s high risk for HIV increased
From the article, Sexual and Relationship Health Concerns for Straight and Gay Men in the United States:
“Gay and bisexual people live a significantly higher risk of being infected with HIV than heterosexual people. In a new analysis from CDC, we show that gay and bisexual men (in a nationally representative sample of adults) faced the highest risk of getting HIV, compared with lesbians (<20% vs <27%), heterosexuals (<12%) and black men (<5%).”
