PBS NewsHour

Rates of HIV infection among men who have sex with men are highest in six Southern states and the District of Columbia, according to a new analysis, conducted by researchers at Emory University. In these states -- South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Georgia -- more than 15 percent of men who have sex with men were HIV-positive in 2012. And in Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina, the rates of diagnosed HIV prevalence among men who have sex with men were nearly twice that of the national rate, the researchers reported Tuesday. When the authors looked at the data on a city level, 21 of the top 25 cities were in the South. In five cities -- Jackson, Miss., Columbia, S.C., El Paso, Texas, Augusta, Ga., and Baton Rouge, La. -- at least a quarter of all men who have sex with men were living with HIV in 2012.
