Bi Men Encouraged to Take Health Survey in Ireland

image-2The United Kingdom’s Health Service Executive is  trying to reduce the high levels of HIV of men having sex with men, and are asking that bisexual and gay men take a survey to help them.

The group they are concerned about accounts for 46 percent of the new HIV diagnoses in Ireland in 2013 and the trend continues this year.

This Internet survey asks about relationships, sex life, behaviors, drug use, risks and precautions, and use of health services. It is anonymous and takes about 15 minutes to complete. It will close on May 31st.

It’s been five years since the last survey of this type was carried out and the last time the survey was done, they found that nearly 38 percent of the men had never been tested for HIV.
