    Conference Paper
    Unlike other studies investigating online sex-seeking and HIV risk, the e-male project is the first to investigate the social aspects of men who have sex with men’s (MSM’s) online practices in relation to HIV prevention. The study has a unique focus on the social capital associated with MSM’s online and offline social networks. Here we report preliminary findings from the study, focusing on a) characteristics of MSM’s online and offline friendships, b) the overlap between online and offline friendships and c) levels of trust, reciprocity and reliability (social capital) associated with these relationships. The implications of our findings for online intervention efforts are discussed.

    Report
    The Health in Men (HIM) cohort is a longitudinal (5-year) study of HIV-negative gay men in Sydney which started in June 2001. It has two arms: a socio-behavioural arm consisting of regular interviews about the impact of HIV on the sexual and social lives of men in the study; and a clinical arm consisting of serological testing for HIV and other sexually transmissible infections. The data collected allow socio-behavioural data to be directly compared with clinical data. Participants are interviewed annually and tested for HIV and other STIs. Up to 500 new men are recruited to the study each year.

    Journal Article
    Objectives HIV care is provided in a range of settings in Australia, but advances in HIV treatment and demographic and geographic changes in the affected population and general practitioner (GP) workforce are testing the sustainability of the special role for GPs. This paper explores how a group of ‘key informants’ described the role of the GP in the Australian approach to HIV care, and conceptualised the challenges currently inspiring debate around future models of care. Methods A thematic analysis was conducted of semistructured interviews carried out in 2010 with 24 professionals holding senior roles in government, non-government and professional organisations that influence Australian HIV care policy. Results The strengths of the role of the GP were described as their community setting, collaborative partnership with other medical and health professions, and focus on patient needs. A number of associated challenges were also identified including the different needs of GPs with high and low HIV caseloads, the changing expectations of professional roles in general practice, and barriers to service accessibility for people living with HIV. Conclusions While there are many advantages to delivering HIV services in primary care, GPs need flexible models of training and accreditation, support in strengthening relationships with other health and medical professionals, and assistance in achieving service accessibility. Consideration of how to support the GP workforce so that care can be made available in the broadest range of geographical and service settings is also critical if systems of HIV care delivery are to be realistic and cost-effective and meet consumer needs.
