HIV and Gay and Bisexual Men

Key Points

  • In the United States, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) are the population most affected by HIV. Among all gay and bisexual men, African Americans are the racial/ethnic group most affected by HIV.
  • CDC recommends that all gay and bisexual men get tested for HIV at least once a year. Sexually active gay and bisexual men should consider getting tested more often, for example, every 3 to 6 months.
  • Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an HIV prevention option for people who are HIV negative and at high risk of getting HIV. People on PrEP take a specific HIV medicine every day. HIV-negative gay and bisexual men at high risk of getting HIV should consider PrEP.
