Abstract

BACKGROUND: We analysed the trend in seroprevalence for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in homosexual or bisexual men who voluntary requested the test in a sexually transmitted disease/HIV clinic in Madrid. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We studied 5,424 homo/bisexual non-injecting drug user (non-IDU) men, who came for the first time since 1986 to 1995. We analysed the HIV seroprevalence taken into account the year, age and exchange of sex by money. A hundred and thirty-six IDU homo/bisexual men were also attended during the same period and they were comparedwith non-IDU. RESULTS: HIV seroprevalence among the 5,424 non-IDU homo/bisexual men were 20.2%, rising from 19.6% in 1986 to 29.6% in 1990. After then, the trend decreased to 15.3% in 1995 (chi(2) for trend, 66.8; p < 0.0001). Average age was three years higher among seropositives (p < 0.0001), and showed an upward trend from 29.9 in 1986 to 34.6 in 1995 (p = 0.0059). Seroprevalence among homosexuals younger than 25fell in the last years. One percent of individuals had ever practicedthe prostitution. They were younger (average age, 27.6), and their HIV seroprevalence were 25.9%. A hundred and thirty-six IDU homo/bisexual men were also attended for the first time, being 2.4% of overall homo/bisexual men. They had a higher seroprevalence (48.5%) than non-IDU (p < 0.0001), and did not show any significative time-trend. CONCLUSIONS: A favourable evolution can be observed in HIV seroprevalence amonghomo/bisexual from Madrid, Spain, men who came to be tested, especially among the youngest. Prevention programs should make an effort to maintain this trend.
