Behavioral Surveillance Study: Sexual Risk Taking Behaviour in UK HIV Outpatient Attendees.

Published: August 18, 2011

Abstract

This study aimed to determine demographic, behavioural and self-report disease/treatment variables among HIV-infected individuals (n = 666) that predict unprotected intercourse with a partner of unknown/discordant status. Sexual risk behaviour was reported by 12.8%.

Psychological symptoms should be assessed and managed in the HIV outpatient setting to ensure integrated care that enhances prevention.
