The Impact of Faith-Based Organisations on Public Health and Social Capital

As a network of faith-based organisations, FaithAction knows that there are many faith groups up and down the country doing health-related work in their communities. However, the value of this work is in danger of not being recognised, both by the groups themselves and by policymakers, in large part because there is a lack of evidence around what is taking place and its effectiveness.

Investigating an outbreak of hepatitis C virus among MSM without HIV

Given the reports about the high-risk practices taking place in London (and likely other cities in high-income countries), it is likely that cases of sexually transmitted HCV are also occurring in some HIV-negative MSM. To investigate this possibility, researchers in London reviewed health-related information collected from HIV-negative patients who sought care at selected clinics in that city.

Gay and Bisexual Men See HIV as the Top Health Issue Facing Their Community, But Majorities Are Not Personally Worried About Getting Infected & Not Getting Tested Regularly

More than thirty years into the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and at a time when infections among gay and bisexual men are on the rise in the U.S., a new national survey of gay and bisexual men by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) finds that though HIV/AIDS is named as the number one health issue facing their population, a majority (56%) are not personally concerned about becoming infected, and relatively few report having been tested recently.

Only half of gay and bisexual men diagnosed with HIV received care and treatment in 2010

Among gay and bisexual men in the United States who have been diagnosed with HIV, only half are receiving care and treatment for their infection, according to a new analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And just 42 percent have achieved viral suppression – meaning their virus is under control at a level that helps keep them healthy and also greatly reduces their risk of transmitting HIV to others.

Choosing to Love Poz Guys

Jake Sobo writes: "The serodivide is crumbling. Hookup sites that used to allow only two options for HIV status now offer endless choices, from undetectable to on PrEP. Recent life expectancy projections suggest that gay men who test HIV-positive today and start treatment quickly will live longer than those who do not...Unlearning decades of stigma and fear will not happen overnight. It will take time and learning. That’s okay. But the cost of staying in place is too great, both for poz guys who face that stigma and fear on a daily basis, and to our communities which remain divided."

PrEP, The Pill, and the Fear of Promiscuity

LGBT academic Ian Lekus compares the furore around PrEP with the one that met the development of the contraceptive pill: "Acknowledged or not, PrEP users — and for that matter, three decades-plus of HIV/AIDS activism — build directly on how the Pill’s early adopters challenged the presumed omniscience of medical authorities. The experiences of the Pill’s first users also remind us to keep a critical eye trained on those institutions and narratives that circumscribe the quest for balancing health, desire, and autonomy."
