Gay Men Urged to Participate in Vital Health Survey

Original Article:

Gay men are being encouraged to help build the health and wellbeing of our community by taking part in an important survey.

The Sydney Gay Community Periodic Survey is designed to improve the understanding of gay health issues by gathering data on sexual behaviour, sexual health, drug use, and community engagement.

The Periodic Survey occurs once a year and is conducted by the Centre for Social Research in Health and the Kirby Institute with ACON and Positive Life NSW. The study forms a vital part of NSW’s HIV response, enabling ACON and other organisations to measure the level of risk behaviour in the community every year.

The survey will commence on Friday 20 February and will continue through to Tuesday 3 March. Recruiters will be visiting 20 LGBTI-friendly venues throughout Sydney, including Fair Day, clinics, pubs, clubs, sex venues, and gyms.
