HIV again attacked sexual minorities

HIV again attacked sexual minoritiesAmerican doctors say again about the rising incidence of HIV/AIDS among homosexuals and bisexuals, which the statistics record for the third year in a row. However, the incidence has remained stable in other traditional risk groups, for example, some parts of the African-American population. These data seriously concern to many professionals.

Since 1999, the incidence in this group increased by 17.7 percent. In addition, the data can say that the success of antiviral drugs, which was noted in the 90s, reached a plateau where further dramatic impact on the incidence becomes impossible. This opinion was expressed by Dr. Ron Valdiserri (Ron Valdiserri, Deputy Director of the Center for the prevention of AIDS, STDs, and TB in the composition of the CDC..
