Study shows rise in HIV infections in men who have sex with men 

News Content

New HIV infections rose in men who have sex with men (MSM) between 1990 and 2010 in the UK, driven by a 26 per cent increase in the proportion having condomless sex, according to research carried out by the Health Protection Agency and UCL. The findings suggest the increase in new infections would have been 68 per cent greater without the introduction of antiretrovirals (ART) in the same period, and 400 per cent greater if MSM condom use had ceased entirely from 2000 onwards. The study funded by the NIHR’s Programme Grants for Applied Research was published in PLOS ONE.
