HIV Infection Rates Remain High Among Gay/Bi Men

"One in five gay/bisexual men in the 21 U.S. cities hardest hit by AIDS have HIV infections -- and nearly half don't know it, a CDC survey finds .

Black gay/bi men and under-30 gay/bi adults are least likely to know of their HIV infections."

The article goes on to give some testing guidelines: "Men who have sex with men -- whether or not they identify themselves as gay or bisexual -- should have HIV tests at least once every year. Men who have multiple or anonymous male sex partners should get HIV tests every three to six months."

Do you think those are good guidelines? Why or why not?
