Thirty-3 % of HIV-good males who have sex with men but who are unaware of their HIV status engaged in unprotected anal sexual intercourse in 2011 with somebody who did not have HIV.
Comparatively, thirteen percent of HIV-beneficial guys who have sex with males who did know their status engaged in unprotected anal sex with a person who did not have HIV.

All people should know their HIV status.”
