Chicago Dept. of Public Health 2012 MSM HIV report

A new report by the Chicago Department of Public Health shows a significant increase in HIV testing, awareness of HIV status and access to medical treatment among Chicago MSM, or men who have sex with men.

The most significant and encouraging numbers were reported among young black men, the city’s only subpopulation currently experiencing annual increases in HIV diagnoses.

The report, released Friday, compared findings from CDC-funded National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System surveys conducted in 2008 and 2011.
