A Behavioral Intervention Reduces HIV Transmission by Promoting Sustained Serosorting Practices Among HIV-Infected MSM
December 23, 2008
The authors sought to examine factors that explain the effect of a cognitive-behavioral intervention, the Healthy Living Project, on reduction in HIV transmission risk among HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM).
"The Healthy Living Project, a cognitive-behavioral intervention, is efficacious in reducing transmission risk acts among MSM. This seems to have been due in large part to the fact that MSM in the intervention condition reported sustained serosorting practices," the authors concluded.
