AbstractHuman Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection has continued to increase in Hong Kong and China. Since about 2006 the incidence of new HIV infections has significantly increased among homosexual men or men who have sex with men (MSM) while new infections among heterosexuals has remained steady. There are several risk factors that may be contributing to the increasing infection rates among MSM including: source for sexual partners, condom use, location of sexual partners, and how new technology may be effecting the spread of HIV. There are gaps in the literature available on MSM and HIV in Hong Kong; particularly in the methods used to identify individuals for study, and the lack of randomized controlled trials to study public health interventions to stop the spread of HIV in Hong Kong.
