Description

In cross-sectional studies, we investigated the frequency of sexual activity and risky sexual behaviors among 264 people living with HIV in Albania, aged over 15 years old. Over the past 12 months, 85.2% were involved in sexual behavior out of which 74.6% were male and 25.4% were female. 75.7% of the sample was heterosexual; 13.6% bisexual; and 10.6 % homosexual. The study found that homo-bisexual committed more sex than heterosexuals respectively 89.3% and 83%. The study found a significant difference in the last 12 months between: sexual orientation and the number of sexual partners; type of sexual partners; kinds of sex; safe sex; knowing your partner’s HIV status; and the HIV status of the last sexual partner (p<0.01).
