The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane is still in need of more than 20 participants for its survey on HIV stigma and health.

The study is calling for participants who identify as gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with men, and are living with HIV to participate in an online survey designed to investigate the effects on their mental health and health behaviours. Its aim is to examine the role of unhelpful patterns of thinking in relation to HIV stigma and the experience of unhealthy feelings, thoughts and behaviours felt by these men.

It’s hoped the study can help increase understanding and awareness of the effects of HIV stigma on male health in an effort to provide more effective preventative action and treatments.

The study is completely anonymous and participants will be guaranteed of confidentiality and privacy, with no personal identifying information being used in the results.

Participants are also given the chance to win one of two $100 iTunes vouchers as a thank you.

The survey will close at the end of August.
