Determinants of Recent HIV Infection Among Seattle-Area Men Who Have Sex With Men
June 11, 2009
The study authors sought to identify HIV infection risk factors related to partner selection and sexual behaviors with those partners among men who have sex with men (MSM) in King County, Wash.
The authors concluded that improved efforts to promote condom use with casual partners -- regardless of their partner's HIV status -- are needed, as are new strategies to control methamphetamine use in MSM and to reduce risk behaviors related to meeting partners at high-risk venues.
