San Francisco HIV Infections Drop


San Francisco health officials are predicting that new HIV infections reported in 2006 will be down about 10% from 2001 levels, and infections among men who have sex with men will decline by as much as 20%. Nevertheless, about 87% of the city's new HIV cases in 2006 will be among gay and bisexual men, according to estimates, which are based on data collected from public clinics, private physicians, HIV testing centers, and risk behavior surveys. The data also suggest that about 24.3% of the city's estimated 58,000-plus gay and bisexual men are now HIV-positive.
