Risk and unprotected anal intercourse among gay men with diagnosed HIV

Joint CIHR Social Research Centre in HIV prevention / REACH in HIV and AIDS seminar. University of Toronto, March 9th, 2011.

Speakers: Catherine Dodds

This seminar presentation provided an overview of findings from our Relative safety II study, informed by sociological and psycho-social risk theory. The physical, social and moral harms that men with diagnosed HIV faced when having sex were outlined, as were the ways in which men sought to manage the likelihood and consequences of those harms. The concept of men with diagnosed HIV both being at risk and posing a risk to others was explored, and the implications for this concept in terms of future risk theory development was discussed.
