HIV diagnoses that were not reported previously were considered new diagnoses.
Trends were analyzed comparing the number of new HIV diagnoses (counted by year in which the diagnosis was made), number of tests performed in publicly funded test sites, and the proportion of those tests that were positive among black and nonblack (white and Hispanic) MSM, stratified by age group (15--19, 20--24, 25--29, and ≥30 years).
CDC compared primary and secondary syphilis incidence for 1999--20--2008 using WDPH surveillance data.
Because syphilis surveillance data in Milwaukee do not document HIV coinfection, CDC also reviewed MHD partner services records, in which coinfection is recorded routinely, for all primary and secondary syphilis cases among black MSM aged 15--29 years diagnosed during January 2006--June 2009.
Because of small numbers, year-to-year differences were highly variable, so CDC compared aggregate data for the years 1999--2001 (before diagnoses increased and before new testing strategies were adopted) and 2006--2008 (after diagnoses increased and after new testing strategies were adopted).
