HIV prevention programs targeted toward men who inject illicit drugs may be overlooking a small but important constituency: those who also have sex with other men.
Recent data in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report show that 80% of all new HIV infections in the United States in 2010 were in men. About three-fourths of those infections were among men who have sex with other men, 6% were among men who inject illicit drugs, and 4% were among men who engage in both of those risky behaviors.
