Post by Anthony Bains23 Aug 2013

The aim of this study is to talk to HIV-positive gay or bisexual men in Sydney to find out what they think about treating people in order to prevent the sexual transmission of HIV.

We hope that this will identify any potential future education or support needs that HIV-positive gay and bisexual men may have in relation to HIV prevention and treatment.

We're interested to hear your thoughts whether you're on HIV drug treatment or not.

  • Does the concept of 'treatment as prevention' affect how you feel about HIV treatment?
  • Does it affect how you feel about HIV prevention?
  • Does it affect how you feel about sex and relationships?
  • Do you think it will affect how other people think about HIV and people living with HIV?

This study is led by the Centre for Social Research in Health with support from ACON and Positive Life NSW. It has received ethics approval from the UNSW Human Research Ethics Committee and from ACON's Research Ethics Review Committee.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for HIV-positive gay or bisexual men aged 18 or older who live in Sydney.

What's involved?

A confidential interview lasting up to two hours at a time and place convenient to you. Reimbursement costs for travel expenses and time are available (up to $30).
