Are safe sex messages effective in reducing STIs?

  • Comments (1)

Last week Nursing Times reported that the number of gay and bisexual men contracting HIV rose over the past 20 years because of a rise in the number having unprotected sex. According to new research the number of UK men who have sex with men (MSM) having intercourse without a condom rose by 26% between 1990 and 2010.

  • Is the current approach to safe sex education appropriate?
  • How can health professionals change sexual behaviour in at risk groups?

    Safe sex education is important but as soon as alcohol is introduced into the equation, education is forgotten/discarded. We can't tackle one without the other.
