Health officials
in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei province, plan
to interview gay and bisexual men in the city about
their sexual behavior to help shape HIV and sexually
transmitted disease prevention programs in the region,
the Xinhua News Agency reports. The survey, which will
include responses from about 200 men, will be administered
by health workers at the city’s disease control
center and by volunteers from the gay organization
Xinyan. Health workers say the study is needed in light
of rapidly rising HIV rates among men who have sex with men
in the province. (Advocate.com)
