On many fronts, we seem closer than ever to ending HIV/AIDS for good. But new research contradicts our optimism: HIV continues to ravage gay men and particularly gay men of color. One in five gay men nationwide is now living with HIV, and for the fourth year running, California's state HIV prevention budget remains at $0. That's why APLA is working harder than ever with people who are HIV-negative to keep them healthy and safe, along with those who are HIV-positive to connect them to care and to prevent them from sparking a new case of HIV when they are most infectious.
