Youth at risk of HIV: The overlooked US HIV prevention crisis
summary
Rates of new HIV diagnoses are highest among racial and ethnic minority youth and young men who have sex with men (MSM). New diagnoses among Latino young MSM increased 17% between 2012 and 2016, and new diagnoses among black young MSM increased. Many existing HIV services in the USA do not meet the needs of at-risk adolescents and young adults. National efforts to adopt novel, differentiated, and age-specific approaches for adolescents and young adults are sorely needed.
