Russian gay people have little knowledge about HIV post-exposure prophylaxis

European Internet survey of men who have sex with men (EMIS-2010), showed dramatically low level of knowledge among Russian homosexuals about post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

It is noted that their knowledge on general issues of HIV is high enough, especially in St. Petersburg. Even the knowledge about post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) there is significantly (5%) higher than in Russia as a whole.
