Abstracts

Prevalence and correlates of HIV infection among men who have sex with men in Hanoi, Vietnam
Ms Hao Bui

Despite advances in HIV biomedical prevention, men who have sex with men (MSM) remain at high risk of HIV infection globally. In Vietnam, where there are concerns that HIV in MSM is increasing, estimates of prevalence and understanding of risk factors in this population remain limited. In this session, Hao will present the results of a baseline survey estimating HIV prevalence among MSM in Hanoi, Vietnam and estimate factors associated with prevalent HIV infection in this population.

Sex discrepancies in the protective effect of opioid agonist therapy on hepatitis C infection
Miss Louise Geddes

Recent research suggests that the protective effect of opioid agonist therapy (OAT) may be attenuated in females compared to males. Using data from the InC3 project, this study assessed sex disparities in hepatitis C virus incidence among people who inject drugs exposed to OAT and factors independently associated with decreased protective efficacy.
