Despite tremendous progress in confronting the global HIV epidemic, new HIV infections continue to increase among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in rich and poor countries alike. The New Paradigms of Risk and Protection: Understanding the HIV Epidemics among Gay and Bisexual Men conference, presented on December 7, 2012, by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the New York Academy of Sciences, discussed the key drivers of the HIV epidemic in this population, including the biology of anal sex, the characteristics of MSM networks, and behavioral factors. The event also explored the unique challenges faced by black MSM around the world and discussed tools and initiatives that could help to turn the tide for this unresolved component of the HIV / AIDS epidemic.
