AFAO, April 2016
Results from the 2007-2015 Seroconversion Study Report were presented at the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO) National Gay Men’s HIV Health Promotion Conference in Manly, on Wednesday 20 April
Data from the latest and final report indicates that gay and bisexual men change their behaviour substantially following an HIV diagnosis, generally in ways that greatly reduce the possibility of onward transmission.
Behaviour changes include partner reduction, partner selection (serosorting), disclosure of HIV status, and reduced likelihood of condomless sex. Contact with peers seems to support these kinds of changes
