Abstract

This study aimed to determine demographic, behavioural and self-report disease/treatment variables among HIV-infected individuals (n = 666) that predict unprotected intercourse with a partner of unknown/discordant status. Sexual risk behaviour was reported by 12.8%. In multivariable analysis, risk was more likely to be reported by gay men compared to women or heterosexual men, and for those with higher psychological symptom burden. Psychological symptoms should be assessed and managed in the HIV outpatient setting to ensure integrated care that enhances prevention.
