ID: <10670/1.rawki6>


Gaysurvey is a regular survey conducted in Switzerland among men who have sex with men (MSM). It is part of the HIV surveillance system, established by the Federal Office for Public Health, as a tool for monitoring HIV/AIDS behaviours in this target group. It has already been carried out nine times: in 1987, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2004, 2007 and 2009. In 2010, EMIS produced some indicators that are presented with Gaysurvey data when available. The results of this survey are directly used to steer and evaluate the HIV/AIDS strategy in Switzerland, as defined by the OFSP and its partners. It makes it possible to establish temporal trends in sexual practices and exposure to the risk of HIV infection. It also allows some topics relevant to prevention work to be explored (risk management in a stable relationship, entry into sexuality, risk reduction practices). The purpose of this report is to summarise trends, updated in the last wave of survey carried out in 2012. [Introduction p. 17]
