“Although several countries in Latin America have shown impressive declines in HIV incidence, the number of new HIV infections in the region increased by 7% between 2010 and 2018, with 100,000 people contracting HIV in 2018. … Forty percent of new HIV infections in Latin America in 2018 occurred among gay men and other men who have sex with men — key populations and their sexual partners account for the majority of new infections in the region…” (10/14).
