AURAH Study Ends

24 September 2014

The AURAH study finished recruiting at the majority of its sites at the end of September 2014. AURAH is a questionnaire study of sexual risk behaviour and attitudes to HIV in undiagnosed individuals who were recruited from 20 sexual health clinics across the UK.

The study built on the work of ASTRA and used a modified version of the ASTRA questionnaire. At completion, the study will have recruited more than 500 Black African and 1300 gay men whose questionnaire answers will provide important comparable information on those at risk of acquiring HIV.
