‘Gay men are being encouraged to help ACON build the health and wellbeing of our community by taking part in an important bi-annual survey. The Sydney Gay Community Periodic Survey is designed to improve understanding of gay health issues by gathering data on sexual behaviour, sexual health, drug use and community engagement.
The Periodic Survey occurs twice a year and is conducted by the National Centre in HIV Social Research and the Kirby Institute in collaboration 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 six months.
The survey will commence on Friday August 19 and will continue through to Sunday August 28. Recruiters will be visiting close to 20 GLBT-friendly venues throughout Sydney including clinics, pubs, clubs, sex venues and gyms... More on the ACON website.’
