News in Brief: Wisconsin


Advocate (06/02/92) No. 604, P. 26

Approximately half of the 300 respondents to a survey of gay men in Milwaukee, Wis., who have multiple sex partners said they do not use condoms to prevent the transmission of HIV. Douglas Nelson, executive director of the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, which conducted the survey, said, "We still have a high-risk population engaging in sexual behaviors that put them at risk." Nelson added that the evidence emphasizes the need for more AIDS education targeted at gay men.
