Since 1981, HIV disease has claimed the lives of more than 300,000 gay and bisexual men in the United States. The largest concentration of new HIV cases is in the greater Fort Lauderdale area.  In 2011, more than 1,000 new cases of HIV were reported, an increase of 25% from 2010.

A New HIV Health and Wellness Assessment Project and Exploratory Study 2013-2014 was undertaken on behalf of Broward County Regional HIV Planning Council (BRHPC) in response to community requests for an assessment of the needs of gay and bisexual men who have sex with men. The goal of the assessment project was to to identify, explore and give voice to the HIV health and wellness concerns among gay and bisexual men, other men sex who have sex with men, and transgender women.

Thirty years into the US epidemic, gay and bisexual men still account for the largest number of new infections.  Please join with the Poverello Center in playing a role in reducing the spread of HIV in Broward County.  As the report states in closing: “In Broward County, addressing HIV is everyone’s business.
