Review published: 2004.

Bibliographic details: Rees R, Kavanagh J, Burchett H, Shepherd J, Brunton G, Harden A, Thomas J, Oliver S, Oakley A.  HIV health promotion and men who have sex with men (MSM): a systematic review of research relevant to the development and implementation of effective and appropriate interventions. London: University of London, Institute of Education, Social Science Research Unit, EPPI-Centre. 2004.

Quality assessment

This review evaluated the effectiveness of HIV-related health promotion interventions in men who have sex with men. The authors concluded that cognitive-behavioural-based counselling or workshops can reduce incidences of unprotected anal intercourse with partners of unknown or sero-discordant HIV status. The authors' conclusions are reliably derived, but the primary recommendation might be overstated given the small number of included studies. Full critical summary

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
