Columbia Reports HIV-Positive Men More Likely to Have Safe Sex When Their Mood Improves; Depressive Episodes Drive Up Risk

In a new study, researchers at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health report that HIV-positive men whose moods improved in a given week were more likely to have safe sex than they would in a normal week. In weeks where moods were worse than usual, they were more likely to have unprotected sex. Results appear online in Health Psychology.
