The histories of the AIDS epidemic in the United States and Australia started similarly, with HIV infection concentrated among men who have sex with men (MSM). Gay communities in both countries reacted by mounting their own “grassroots” education, service, and advocacy programs, and both countries' governments reacted by funding medical and epidemiologic research. Behavioral prevention efforts followed closely thereafter. This chapter reviews the HIV/AIDS behavioral literature focusing on gay men from Australia and the United States to better understand and learn how to develop HIV behavioral interventions from the combined experience of HIV prevention researchers from the two countries. It recommends routine data collection in the following areas: attitudes, HIV testing, correlates of risk behaviors, risk reduction strategies, sexual risk behaviors, connectedness to the gay community, the range of sex practices, exposure to and use of medical and behavioral prevention services, and treatment of HIV-infected MSM.
