Abstract
  • Anal cancer in the general population is more prevalent in women, but in most HIV populations, MSM have the highest risk. Data suggest that screening can prevent invasive carcinoma. Use of routine cervical pap smears resulted in an 80% reduction in cervical cancer rates. The current study examines the effectiveness of a clinical intervention designed to increase anal dysplasia education, screening, and treatment for HIV+ MSM.
