HIV Seroconversion Sub-study of Heterosexuals Newly Diagnosed with HIV

Past project

The Seroconversion Study is a national online survey that examines the experiences of people newly diagnosed with HIV. The study includes a qualitative component wherein participants can elect to take part in an in-depth interview. Since 1992 the study has focused exclusively on gay men as the most affected population. In 2010 recruitment was opened to all persons regardless of sexuality and gender. The sub-study was established to more effectively capture the experiences of women and heterosexual men. The study in its current form was completed in 2016 and a final report was published.
