Survey – How do you see HIV?
We want to find out how gay men and people in gay communities feel about HIV, so we can better understand HIV stigma. This includes how beliefs about HIV affect personal decisions and the community as a whole.
That is why we are conducting a survey that asks for views on HIV, relationships, sex and the role of the gay community.
The survey is now closed and the results will be made available towards the end of 2012.
