ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the Count Me In campaign of Gay Men Fighting AIDS (GMFA) to draw attention to factors that contribute to the spread of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in Great Britain. He cites the stereotyping of men with HIV and the uncertainty of many gay men about their HIV status as key factors of HIV transmission among gay men in the country. He also cites the need to address the impact of poor mental and emotional wellbeing on gay men's ability to stick to safer sex.
