Abstract

Specific risk behaviors related to different sexually transmitted infections have not been widely evaluated among men who have sex with men in China. In the present study, a total of 302 MSM were recruited from Beijing with a prevalence of HIV, syphilis, and anal HPV infection as 9.9, 19.2 and 71.4%, respectively. Lower education level was observed to be related to higher infection rate of HIV and syphilis. “Ever found sexual partners in gay venues” was significantly associated with HIV infection as well. “Taking anilinction as regular sexual behavior” was observed to be a significant predictor for anal HPV infection.

En el presente estudio, un total de 302 HSH de Beijing fueron reclutados, con una prevalencia del VIH, la sífilis y la infección anal por VPH, como el 9,9%, 19,2% y 71,4% respectivamente. Menor nivel de estudios se observó que en relación con la tasa de infección más alta de VIH y sífilis. “El buscar pareja sexual en lugar homosexual” se asocia significativamente con la infección por VIH. “Tomando anilingus como el comportamiento sexual normal” se observa a ser un predictor significativo de infección anal por VPH.
