Mississippi HIV Statistics

In Mississippi, the burden of HIV is disproportionately high for men who have sex with men.

High Risk Groups for HIV

Nationally, HIV is spreading fastest among young people, gay and bisexual men, African Americans, and Latinos. In Mississippi, the burden of HIV is disproportionately high for men who have sex with men (MSM). Among men whose risk factor for HIV is known, 97 percent of men reported having male-to-male sexual contact. Young adults aged 20-29 represented the majority (45 percent) of newly diagnosed cases in 2015, but the burden was highest among black males aged 20-24.
