This chapter reviews the HIV/AIDS epidemiology of young African American men who have sex with men (MSM) and the characteristics that affect prevention efforts within the African American MSM community. It also reviews the racial disparities in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s Young Men's Survey, as well as findings from another study of young MSM conducted in Chicago (Project Q) which examines the psychosocial and sociodemographic characteristics that underlie racial disparities. Finally, it offers practical policy solutions and implications for social work practice, and suggests areas for future research and advocacy.

Keywords:   HIV, AIDS, African American men, racial disparities, Young Men's Survey, Project Q
