HIV incidence among younger Black men who have sex with men (MSM) aged 13-29 increased by 48%; with HIV incidence unchanged among other young MSM. In addition, epidemiological surveillance data show that transgender adolescents and young adults, especially transgender youth of color, are heavily impacted by HIV/AIDS. Given high rates of HIV infection among young Black men who have sex with men and transgender persons (YBMSMT), engagement in HIV primary care, which includes linkage to and retention in care, is critical for reducing onward transmissions and outcome disparities.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
