While at the 2014 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) this week, I was pleased to sit down with Dr. Jonathan Mermin, Director of CDC’s Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP). Given that the HIV care continuum has been a topic of significant interest here at the conference, Dr. Mermin and I discussed some encouraging findings from the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System that CDC has shared at CROI this week. The CDC findings highlight improvements in the proportion of gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) who are getting HIV tests and, among those who are HIV-positive, increases in the proportion who are on antiretroviral treatment.
View our conversation below.

Dr. Mermin and I also discussed viral hepatitis, another key topic of concern here at the conference. We’ll share highlights of that conversation next week.
