According to the Centers for Disease Control men who have sex with men are 44 times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV than other men. They are also 40 times more likely than women to get an HIV infection according to an analysis released at the 2010 National STD Prevention Conference. What this means is that until every community prioritizes prevention efforts within the gay population the HIV epidemic will be a public health problem. But the solution may not be that easy. Kevin Fenton of the CDC may have put it best when he said "there is no single or simple solution for reducing HIV rates among gay and bisexual men. We need intensified prevention efforts that are as diverse as the gay community itself."
