Major Conclusions of the Study
I came here today with the hope that this administration would do everything possible, make every resource available -- there is no reason why this disease cannot be conquered. . . . I came here today in the hope that my epitaph would not read that I died of red tape.1
|3.1 Homosexually active men in New Zealand form a heterogeneous sub-group of the wider population.|
|3.2 Homosexually active men appear to average a higher socio-economic status than other urban New Zealanders.|
|3.3 The need for culturally sensitive research in the Maori and other Polynesian communities was identified as both urgently needed and not covered by this study.|
|3.4 When compared with results from overseas studies, fewer NZ respondents were in relationships of greater than one year's duration. This was hypothesized as possibly an effect of legislation.|
|3.5 While most men in the study had one or fewer sexual partners per month, a few had many partners. AIDS education strategies targeting the latter group appear warranted.|
