Objective: To investigate the characteristics and trends of the HIV epidemic in Heilongjiang province of China between 1993 and 2012. Methods: Data from the provincial surveillance system for HIV infections and AIDS were reviewed. Local health staff reviewed medical records, including dates of HIV/AIDS diagnose and deaths, exposure category, treatment, laboratory testing, and demographics. Results: By 31 October 2012, a total of 3062 HIV-infections were reported with 426 deaths, 38.1% of whom were diagnosed as AIDS. Since 2007, homosexual transmission has increased and become the dominant route of HIV transmission, accounting for 57.9% of cases during 2009-2010, and 69.0% during 2011-2012. Men who have sex with men (MSM) with HIV-infections had the following characteristics: 21-30 year age group (42.4%); unmarried (61.6%); urban residents (46.7%); and college or higher education (36.8%). In addition, the proportion of MSM <30 years of age and rural residents showed an uptrend across the study years. Conclusions: The HIV/AIDS epidemic has continued to increase in Heilongjiang province, and has shown an explosive growth since 2009, with MSM making a tremendous contribution to the HIV outbreak. Homosexual contact has become the dominant route of HIV transmission. Urgent intervention is needed to recognize this target population, especially those <30 years of age, unmarried, and urban residents.
