Men and HIV

More than 30 years into the epidemic, gay and bisexual men continue to be most severely affected by HIV nationwide and at elevated risk for HIV due to a number of complex factors. Despite research showing that communication between sexual partners is associated with increased condom use, HIV testing, and HIV status disclosure, many gay and bisexual men may still find it difficult to talk openly with their sexual partners about HIV prevention.

Help us spark conversations about HIV and promote the "Start Talking. Stop HIV." campaign.
