In 2013, Hispanics/Latinos accounted for almost one quarter of all estimated new diagnoses of HIV infection in the United States and 6 dependent areas, despite representing about 17 percent of the total U.S. population.1 The annual number of diagnoses among Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men has increased 16 percent since 2008. A greater number of people are living with HIV (prevalence) in Hispanic/Latino communities than among some other racial and ethnic groups.1
