NYU Reports a Majority of HIV-Positive Men Tested Used Methamphetamine for Years without Seroconverting

Journal of Health Psychology recently published an article by the NYU College of Global Public Health’s, Dr. Perry Halkitis, “Temporal relations between methamphetamine use and HIV seroconversion in gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men“. Dr. Halkitis reports two findings aimed at “disentangling the meth-sex link” among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men. First, gay, bisexual, and other MSM can use methamphetamine for years without seroconverting. Secondly, the majority of HIV-positive men in the sample group, only initiated methamphetamine use after several years of living with the HIV virus.
