Men who have sex with men (MSM), have been particularly hard hit since the beginning of the HIV epidemic, and continue to have rising levels of HIV infection in the U.S. and abroad. In addition, MSM who also have sex with women are an important “bridging population” for HIV transmission to their female partners. Illicit drug use in MSM, particularly the use of “club drugs”, such as methamphetamine, ecstasy, and ketamine, stimulates unsafe behaviors associated with increased risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI). High comorbidity of drug use and HIV/STI, along with other psychosocial and health problems in MSM demonstrate a syndemic (an epidemic of two conditions/ behaviors that influence each other), characterized as a range of co-occurring interdependent socio-environmental, interpersonal and intrapersonal determinants, contributing to an excess disease burden. Many studies have documented disparities in drug use, HIV/STI and related psychosocial and health problems. Aim 1. Estimate the prevalence and patterns of drug use, HIV/STI and related syndemics in MSM, using a novel sampling strategy and a linked biological and behavioral survey. Aim 2. Assess the relationships between drug use, sexual behaviors and HIV/STI, and other factors contributing to syndemic risk in MSM. 1)Write two RESEARCH TOPICS for the above PROPOSED research using the exposure–disease or condition–population framework. 2)For each of the two Research Topics above, what is the independent variable? Dependent variable? 3) Give an example of a possible confounding variable for this study. Describe why it might “confound” the results. 4)Write the HYPOTHESIS related to EACH specific aim above. 5)Write one QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH QUESTION for the above study. 6) Choose a design to answer your quantitative research question (above). Describe why you have selected that design. 7) What data would you collect to answer the quantitative research question above? From whom? 8) Write one QUALITATIVE RESEARCH QUESTION for the above study. 9) What data would you collect to answer the qualitative question above? From whom? • Show less
