Mobile Devices May Determine How Places and People Increase HIV Risk Behavior

Adult men who have sex with men (MSM) are one of the highest risk groups for HIV.  In 2010, MSM accounted for 78 percent of new HIV infections among males—with more than one third of all new HIV/AIDS infections occurring among those ages 18 to 29. Social and geographic triggers among the MSM community, factors such as stigma, poverty and proximity to risky areas, may be particularly influential in small cities and towns, with this risk being amplified among those who engage in substance use.
