Study: HIV Prevention Often Ignores Gay Couples
Gay couples are often ignored in HIV prevention efforts
despite their sexual behaviors, which can lead to seroconversions, according to
a study published in the journal AIDS Care
and reported by the Bay Area Reporter. The researchers suggest that understanding what motivates gay couples
to make “sexual agreements” (rules about sex with outside partners) may assist
HIV prevention efforts. The findings are part of a larger five-year study following
566 gay couples that is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and is
looking at HIV prevention.
