Men who have sex with men? Complete this important survey on sexual health

HIV diagnosis is not a death sentence, but there is always more to be done to help tackle HIV/AIDS and its spread.

The American Men’s Internet Survey (AMIS), conducted by researchers in the Department of Epidemiology at Emory University, does important work with its annual research, and gay and bisexual men can help them now by completing this year’s survey.

As men who have sex with men make up the highest proportion of those infected with HIV in the US, regularly looking at behavior patterns is key to helping us to understand what’s happening right now in the community and how it may be changing over time.

By looking at the results of the survey and identifying important or new factors relating to HIV and other health risks, healthy policy can then be improved.

To help AMIS in their vital work, fill out the survey here.

The questionnaire covers things like demographics, sexual behavior, HIV and STI testing and diagnosis history, drug and alcohol use, PrEP knowledge, interest, and use, and HIV prevention services.

The survey also asks questions about mental health and stigma to learn more about the experiences of men who have sex with men in the US.

The survey recruits 10000 men every year, and has been running since 2013.

If you’re wondering what will happen to your answers, they’re used to monitor trends in HIV risk behaviors, HIV testing, and use of HIV prevention services.

They’re also used in analyses for publication, and anonymous data is shared with public health agencies in some larger cities and states to help develop policy.

Participants must be at least 15 years old and be men who have sex with men who live in the US.

All personal information is kept confidential and protected by law.


So fill out the survey here and do your bit to help improve the response to HIV/AIDS.
