Abstract

The paper gives the results of surveys among men having sex with men in Kazan. The surveys were made by a structured deep interview (16 respondents) in May 2005 and by a questionnaire (188 respondents) in 2006-2007. The community has been found to include wide age range subjects who have a high educational level and show a responsible attitude towards their health, are well informed about HIV infection, and use protective agents during sexual contacts. Most of them have no constant sexual partner, but lead a rather active sexual life, assess the risk of HIV infection as low, although every three men have a history of sexually transmitted infections.
