Nope, the "Down Low" Didn't Do It


Heterosexual black men with multiple sex partners -- not bisexual men who secretly have sex with men -- are responsible for high rates of HIV among black women, according to a senior official at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "We have looked to see what proportion of infections is coming from male partners who are bisexual and found there are actually relatively few," says Kevin Fenton, director of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. "More are male partners who are having female partners and are injecting drugs or using drugs or have some other risks that may put those female partners at risk of acquiring HIV."
