HIV rate rises sharply among gay men in Israel

2010 data: One fifth of the 2,000 gay men who participated in a study did not use condoms during the previous six months.

Among the 420 newly diagnosed cases of HIV in Israel in 2010, 148 of them were homosexual men, according to the Health Ministry, which is worried about the “dramatic increase” in infection among gay men. They constituted half of all men who were newly diagnosed.
The ministry released figures to mark World AIDS Day, December 1.
