Although there has been a reduction in incident HIV infection in some MSM communities in developed countries, in others new diagnoses and incident infections are increasing. Helping those who are HIV negative to remain negative remains a pressing concern. The number of men who are HIV positive is increasing because of successful ART, but the sexual health needs of positive MSM are rarely addressed. This presentation focuses on behavioural research in the era of ART, with particular reference to continuing transmission of HIV, current risk behaviour for HIV infection, and the challenging situation with regard to established and emerging STIs in MSM.
