By the age of 35, Black Men who have Sex with Men (MSM’s) have a one in two chance of HIV infection. Black MSM’s, which represent less than 1% of the US population, are home to nearly 1/4 of existing HIV cases, AIDS deaths as well as new HIV diagnosis. As early as 1987, studies were published revealing a paradoxical reality, that although Black MSM’s had no significant difference in risk behavior, there is a much larger HIV Prevalence among this group as nearly one in three Black MSM’s are HIV positive. Consistently and repeatedly, studies have shown Black MSM’s have fewer sexual partners than their White counterparts, and fewer occurrences of unprotected anal intercourse, yet significantly higher rates of HIV Incidence. Qualitative analysis of interviews with President Obama's Directors of National HIV/AIDS Policy (Jeff Crowley, Dr. Grant Colfax, Douglas Brooks) and other specialists: Dr. Anthony Fauci, Greg Millet, Dr. DeAnn Gruber, Phil Wilson, & Dr. Roxanne Cox-Iyamu. Quantitative analysis of surveys collected in-person and online from 300 respondents in 23 states using two methods: Time Location Sampling and Respondent Driven Sampling. It concludes with recommendations.
