SFAF.org Podcast #31 - Dr. David Malebranche on the rising HIV transmission rate among Black gay men

Dr. David Malebranche, an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Emory University's School of Medicine and a member of the President's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, discusses HIV and Black gay men. Though it has been demonstrated that HIV risk behaviors in the Black men who have sex with men (MSM) community are often less risky than those of the MSM community in general, the HIV transmission rate in Black gay men continues to rise. Dr. Malebranche will be a panelist at our May 15th HIVision Forum entitled What's Going On: HIV and Black Gay Men.
