Description:
Sex between men and HIV infection on the island of Ireland HIV is a major health hazard for gay and bisexual men in Ireland, and thus men who have sex with men (MSM) will be a major part of the HIV epidemic for the foreseeable future. Both Irish and United Kingdom (UK) governmental health, HIV and sexual health reports acknowledge the gay community as a population to engage with and accommodate when planning and implementing health promotion strategies. It is also acknowledged that HIV transmission among men who have sex with men continues to rise. Research is seen as an important way to guide these strategies, and this report on the 2003 and 2004 surveys is a significant contribution to that end. Since the publication ofVS12000, HIV has continued to rise in Ireland, both north and south. There has also been an increase in the prevalence of other sexually transmitted infections (STI) such as syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhoea, which are indicators of sexual activity and which can also increase the risk of HIV co-infection.
