2002 Survey Findings
In 2002, 1734 men (62% response rate) were surveyed and significant increases in sexual risk behaviour were evident for the first time. In 1996 and 1999, 11% of men surveyed reported unprotected anal intercourse with casual partners, compared with 19% in 2002. Men were also more likely to report that they ‘knew’ their casual partners’ HIV status, despite no increase in HIV testing.
