Introduction


Since the first report, in 1981, of AIDS in five men who have sex with men (MSM) in Los Angeles,1 the AIDS epidemic has swept the world. In the US, during the intervening 27 years, the demographics of the disease have changed dramatically. What was once a disease of Caucasian MSM has evolved into a disease that increasingly affects women and disproportionately affects people of color.2 This brief review will examine the demographics of the HIV epidemic as it now exists in the US.
