HIV and Youth

Edith Jickling's picture
In 2016, youth aged 13 to 24 accounted for 2% of all new HIV diagnoses in the United States. Most of those new diagnoses among youth (81%) occurred among gay and bisexual males. Young black/African American and Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual males are especially affected; however, we are seeing progress. Estimated annual HIV infections fell 24% among youth from 2010 to 2015.
