Attitudes to and Understanding of Risk of Acquisition of HIV

AURAH is a cross sectional questionnaire study of sexual risk behaviour, attitudes to HIV transmission, antiretroviral treatment for prevention and wellbeing in HIV-negative individuals at risk of HIV-infection recruited from sexual health clinics.

AURAH uses a modified version of the ASTRA self-administered questionnaire and will be conducted among those attending for routine sexually transmitted infection (STI) and/or HIV testing in more than 15 UK sexual health clinics. The study aims to recruit more than 2000 participants.
