“Testing Barriers” – Healthy Gay Scotland 2002

This report explores the impact of new treatments upon gay men’s HIV testing decisions. The research outlined in this report describes the results of two studies carried to examine HIV testing amongst gay men in Scotland. The first is a qualitative study which provides an in-depth, contemporary account of gay men’s understandings and experiences of HIV testing in Scotland. The second is a quantitative study built upon the qualitative findings, and provides data from a larger, more representative sample of gay men recruited through commercial gay venues in Glasgow and Edinburgh. These studies provide a valuable insight into men’s experiences and understanding of HIV testing in Scotland, and the complexity of their responses to managing HIV.

The report, and it’s executive summary “Breaking Down Barriers”, are available from:
