Description:
It is now a commonplace in gay communities throughout the world that new initiatives are galvanised by a realisation that people simply cannot accept yet another funeral of a loved friend, dead several decades before his time. This report is a culmination of just such a shared new awareness in the Irish gay community. Over the years there have been, of course, important HIV prevention initiatives, voluntary and statutory, specially for gay men. However, the decision to carry out this study reflects a renewed consensus that the continuing annual increase in the numbers of HIV positive gay men is unacceptable. This increase calls for urgent and comprehensive action within the framework of an agreed national strategy.
