San Francisco Sees Declines in New HIV Infections and Deaths of People with HIV

Experts agree that the decline in new infections is due to a combination of factors including widespread testing, early antiretroviral therapy (ART), and possibly pre-exposure prophylaxis -- although PrEP is probably too recent to have had a substantial effect yet.

Sex on premises

In news that will shock absolutely no-one, gay men and men who have sex with men (MSM) enjoy having sex. Often, we’re not too fussed where – bedrooms, backrooms, bathrooms – so much so that commercial operations exist to provide gay men the opportunity to show up, fuck and leave.

Serosorting in the Age of PrEP

Josh Kruger writes: In the past, HIV+ and HIV- men often sought partners of the same status. Is it still, or was it ever, necessary? Sometimes, I’ll hear HIV-positive people talk about how the best way they can prevent HIV is to only date or have sex with other HIV-positive people. I can understand this line of thinking; I used to hold the same sentiment. Still, the longer that I live with HIV, and the more advances I see being made in science, I think we need to scrap this idea altogether.

The Report: Chemsex

Crystal Meth, GHB/GBL and Mephedrone are drugs that together can heighten arousal and strip away inhibitions. They've become increasingly popular on London's gay scene, and the effects can see some users taking part in weekend-long sex parties, involving multiple partners. For Radio 4's The Report, Mobeen Azhar speaks to men entrenched in this lifestyle and explores the impact the so-called 'chemsex' scene is having on public health services.

What makes you think he’ll never cheat?

Working in HIV prevention, I can no longer count the number of times I’ve heard someone say that they believed that they were in a monogamous relationship only to find out that they weren’t. That’s a harsh wake-up call at the best of times. When accompanied by an HIV diagnosis it is far from the best of times.

Appalachia gripped by hepatitis C epidemic, bracing for HIV

Patton Couch, 25, is one of thousands of young Appalachian drug users recently diagnosed with hepatitis C. Yet public health officials warn that it could get much worse. Two hundred miles north, Scott County, Indiana, is grappling with one of the worst American HIV outbreaks among injection drug users in decades. Kentucky, with the nation's highest rate of acute hepatitis C, might be just a few dirty needles away from a similar catastrophe. "One person could be Typhoid Mary of HIV," said Dr. Jennifer Havens, an epidemiologist at the University of Kentucky's Center on Drug and Alcohol Research, who has studied Perry County drug users for years as the hepatitis rate spiraled through small-town drug circles there. An explosion of hepatitis C, transmitted through injection drug use and unprotected sex, can foreshadow a wave of HIV cases.
