The CDC’s March 2018 supplemental report presents data for the incidence and prevalence of HIV infection among adults and adolescents (aged 13 years and older) that were reported to CDC through June 2017. The CDC also issued an Infographic, featured here, that summarizes some of the key findings from the 77-page report.
Case reports for the covered period show an overall 8% drop in new infection rates in the United States, with the rate of new infections in men who have sex with men (MSM) remaining stable. However, infection rates increased by 22% for Latino/Hispanic MSM, and increased 32% for MSM between 25 and 34. HIV rates remain very high for Black people in the U.S., accounting for 42% of all new reported infections.
