HIV testing and risky sexual behaviour

Geoff Riley

2nd February 2015

People surprised by HIV-positive test results increase their risky sexual behaviour, exposing their partners to HIV infection and experiencing a more than nine-fold increase in sexually transmitted infections (STIs). That is the key finding of research by Erick Gong, published in the February 2015 issue of the Economic Journal.
