Prentice Hall; Available online: MMWR ;66 4: Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men bear the greatest burden by risk group, representing an estimated 26, of new HIV infections per year. Interview procedures The study was approved by the ethics committees of the Institute of Sociology of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Medical College of Wisconsin.
In Hungary, and apart from medical care, there are few institutional support networks organized for PLH. Stigmatization, through its serious disempowering effects on the stigmatized, can limit access to prevention and care services. For gay and bisexual youth who are just beginning to explore their sexuality, homophobia and other forms of anti-LGBTQ bias help explain why so many young people in our community are unaware of their HIV status.
