This letter is in response to the September 9, 2002, article entitled #1Effectiveness of Interventions to Prevent Sexually Transmitted Infections #1STIs] and Human Immunodeficiency Virus [HIV] in Heterosexual Men."1 While we commend the rigorous review conducted by the authors, we wish to rebut Elwy et al's assertion that "no systematic reviews have been conducted to determine the most effective social and behavioral means of preventing the spread of STIs and HIV among heterosexual men."1(p1818) We direct readers to a similar systematic review that we published in 1999 entitled "HIV Sexual Risk Reduction Interventions With Heterosexual Men: The Forgotten Group."2
