Men who have sex with men reported that barriers to establishing nonjudgmental relationships with primary care providers limited their access to pre-exposure prophylaxis for the prevention of HIV infection, according to new research published in LGBT Health.

“Despite recent emphasis on the importance of creating a clinical atmosphere conducive to disclosing sexual orientation, taking a sexual history, and assessing HIV risk, this study suggests that primary care providers’ failure to do so remains a barrier to HIV prevention,” William M. Byne, MD, PhD, associate professor of psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, and editor-in-chief of LGBT Health, said in a press release.
