Men

In 2009, the largest proportion of diagnoses of HIV infection among adults and adolescents were men who have sex with men (MSM). This category accounted for 57 percent of the estimated number of diagnoses of HIV infection in the 40 states with confidential name-based HIV infection reporting. Male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use accounted for approximately 3 percent (1).

However, MSM are not alone in their risk; heterosexual contact accounted for 10 percent of estimated HIV infection diagnoses among male adults and adolescents in 2009, and injection drug use accounted for 6 percent (1).
