Abstract

HIV testing among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China has not been well studied. We systematically reviewed studies addressing HIV testing among MSM in China and conducted a meta-analysis on testing indicators before and after the adoption of China's National Plan for HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control among MSM in 2007. Rate of lifetime HIV testing (24 % [period 1-before adoption] vs. 47 % [period 2-after adoption]) and testing in the past 12 months (21 vs. 38 %) were both significantly higher in period 2. Rate of lifetime pre-test counseling showed a significant increase from period 1 to period 2 (72 vs. 90 %), while the figure for the past 12 months pre-test counseling did not change (51 vs. 50 %). More efforts are needed to promote frequent HIV testing among MSM.
