Abstract

This briefing sheet provides an overview on the recreational drug poppers (nitrate inhalants) for sexual health promoters working with gay men, bisexual men and other men that have sex with men. Poppers are substances with a long and contested history of links with HIV infection, immune suppression and AIDS. This briefing presents an overview of the evidence for links between HIV transmission and the use of poppers.
