Introduction China is amidst a sexual revolution. We are currently conducting a randomized controlled clinical trial to assess the effectiveness of this HIV risk prediction tool at promoting HIV testing and decreasing HIV-related high-risk behaviors, such as reducing the number of sexual partners, increasing the proportion of condom usage, etc.
Kate Mitchell, Ben Cheng, Dr. Future studies should explore how cultural dispositions might shape the uptake of emerging risk reduction and HIV-prevention strategies. They represent a potential risk factor for the spread of HIV and syphilis that can be better targeted.
The revised survey instrument was then piloted among MSM prior to the final survey.
The open prospective cohort enrolled MSM from Shenyang, China, through a snowball sampling method and followed this cohort from January to January through the voluntary counseling and testing center in the First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University [ 17 ].
Overall, Accessing HIV testing and treatment among men who have sex with men in China: a qualitative study. Electronic supplementary material The online version of this article doi Second, the current HIV infection risk assessment software gives related prevention and control recommendations but is not connected to more substantive HIV interventions.
All statistical analyses were performed using SAS 9. Figure 3.
Comparing samples of men who have sex with men recruited online and in venues, Jiangsu Province, China, For features of the app, preferences centered on the targeted populations, attributes of the app, language used in the app, access to the app, and their perception of usefulness of the app.
Participants had different opinions on the target populations for the app. Together, the evidence and theory summarized above suggest that patterns of community connectedness may reflect, to some degree, the underlying cultural values of gay men, and thus may also play a role in shaping their sexual behavior.
Other researchers could use their local MSM prospective cohort data to calculate their own parameters to develop their specialized HIV risk assessment tool. This is consistent with observations from Australia and the US [ 9 , 17 ].
