HIV Super-Infection Beliefs and Sexual Practices of People Living With HIV/AIDS
January 11, 2011
The authors introduced the current study by noting, "People living with HIV can be re-infected with a new viral strain resulting in potential treatment-resistant recombinant virus known as HIV super-infection," and that patients' beliefs about this risk "may have significant effects" on their sexual behavior.
The subjects of the study were 320 men, 137 women, and 33 transgender persons, all of whom completed confidential surveys in a community research setting.
