It's Not Over 


There were more than 39,000 new HIV diagnoses in 2016 across the U.S.  Infection rates dropped 19% between 2005 and 2014. That's good news.  But there were also increases in infection rates: +4% among African American gay and bisexual men and  +14% among Hispanic gay and bisexual men.  There are treatments, but no vaccine.  It's not over.
