Abstract

In The Lancet HIV, Eli Rosenberg and colleagues report their reconstruction and population of the HIV care continuum from publicly available and nationally representative data of men who have sex with men (MSM) in the USA. Viral suppression, the penultimate desired effect on the continuum, is achieved in 16% of black and 34% of white MSM. After modelling various scenarios of how differences in viral suppression could affect the future course of the epidemic, the investigators reach the disappointing conclusion that even in the best-case scenario racial disparities in HIV prevalence will sustain a higher incidence in black MSM for decades to come.
