HIV prevention began with gay men deciding to use condoms. Since that time, social and clinical research have charted the ways in which people have accommodated HIV prevention into their sexual and recreational drug-taking practices.
From early studies of condom use and needle exchanges in the community, through negotiated safety, sero-sorting, PrEP and undetectable viral load — community participation has been a cornerstone of these research initiatives.
From concept development, scientific advisory panels, study design and participation — community collaboration, insight and expertise have been fundamental characteristics of Australia’s HIV prevention landscape. This forum will examine the particular strengths of this approach to prevention and prevention research encompassing both social and clinical research disciplines.
