How is the study being implemented?

Two surveys over five-years that are designed to provide consistent and representative estimates of HIV risk behaviour, HIV sero-status, antiretroviral therapy (ART) use and viral load among MSM in Greater Vancouver.


This first study study consisted of two linked projects and operated over five years, from 2011 to 2016. The new study launched in February 2017 and will take on the same format.
