MSM - Men who have Sex with Men

In 2018, 47.3% of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients were men who have sex with men (MSM, gay and bisexual 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 2017, 70% of new HIV diagnoses in the U.S. were among MSM. The impact is heaviest on African American MSM. See the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau Fact Sheet, Gay, Bisexual, and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM) Clients: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, 2018 (January 2020).
