Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the patterns and frequency of multiple risk behaviours (alcohol, drugs, smoking, higher risk sexual activity) among men who have sex with men (MSM) living with HIV. METHODS: Cross sectional study. RESULTS: 819 HIV-positive MSM exhibited a high-risk phenotype (defined as >3 of smoking, excess alcohol, sexually transmitted infection and recent recreational drug use). This phenotype was associated with younger age, depressive symptoms and <90% adherence in multivariable logistic regression. CONCLUSION: In a cohort of MSM, a small, but significant proportion exhibited multiple concurrent risk behaviours.
