MSM - Men who have Sex with Men

As it was in the earliest days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, MSM comprise the majority of HIV/AIDS cases in the U.S., representing over half of those infected with HIV/AIDS. In 2020, among MSM getting medical care from the RWHAP, 90.3% achieved viral suppression. These rates varied across MSM populations, particularly MSM with unstable housing and younger MSM.
