A major goal in the fight against the HIV epidemic is increasing Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) adherence, however the impact of alcohol on PrEP adherence is not well established. Therefore, this study explores the effects of alcohol consumption on PrEP use in gay and bisexual men.
The role that food insecurity and other material needs plays in HIV seroconversion among sexual minority men (SMM) is not well understood; therefore, this project seeks to elucidate the impact of material needs on PrEP uptake and adherence among Together 5,000 participants.
Methamphetamine (i.e., meth) use continues to be a public health concern among SMM and is associated with increased vulnerability for HIV. AMETHST 5000 aims to identify multi-level and bio-behavioral determinants of HIV seroconversion among SMM who use meth that can later be used to inform telehealth interventions to increase PrEP uptake and reduce meth use.
Together 5,000 aims to explore individual-, network-, and contextual-level predictors and correlates of HIV seroconversion to better inform and develop interventions to further reduce HIV transmission.
The Communities, Households and SARS-CoV-2 Epidemiology (CHASING) COVID Cohort is designed to help contribute to our understanding of this pandemic, how it is affecting households across America, how it is spreading, and whether our efforts to slow the spread are working.
