Answer

Surveillance data now show that the only group with increasing HIV incidence is men who have sex with men. The proportion of this population who are unaware of their infection is high, with unawareness among young men (18-29 y) reaching 63%. [4]

In the United States, youths aged 13-24 years accounted for 25.7% of new HIV infections in 2010. [5]
