The European MSM Internet Survey (EMIS-2017) report is published

The European Men-Who-Have-Sex-With-Men Internet Survey (EMIS-2017) report presents a comprehensive analysis of the results of a 2017 survey among men who have sex with men (MSM). Based on the responses of some 128 000 participants in Europe, it provides insights on their knowledge of HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmitted infections (STI), sexual behaviour, prevention needs and testing habits. The report collected data to understand changes over time in the behaviour, needs and interventions affecting HIV incidence among MSM also in comparison with results from the EMIS survey in 2010. 48 countries in Europe responded to the online survey in 2017, including Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The results show considerable differences across the countries reflecting Europe’s diversity with respect to sexual health and behaviour of MSM.
