Text:A Massey University graduate has been awarded a Ph D scholarship by the Ministry of Health for his work in the area of HIV research and prevention. Peter Saxton was a principal investigator on the Gay Auckland Periodic Sex Survey, a behavioural surveillance survey of 812 men who have sex with men in the Auckland area, investigating key areas of sexual risk behaviour. A researcher and policy analyst at the New Zealand AIDS Foundation since 1997, a substantial component of Peter's work has been directed at analysis of HIV prevention campaigns for men who have sex with men and public health practice in relation to HIV. His Ph D research will build upon his previous work, with the primary goal being to help prevent the further transmission of HIV among gay males in New Zealand.
