    SOCIAL SCIENCE

    35-10 Drug Use, Sexual Risk Behaviors, and HIV in Men (NIH)

    The purpose of this program announcement is to support epidemiological and HIV prevention research on drug use, sexual risk behaviors, and HIV prevention research in an especially high risk group: men who use drugs and have sex with men (DU MSM). Because DU MSM may engage in both high risk drug use and sexual practicers, and may have multiple and different drug use and sex practices and networks, they not only constitute an important HIV risk group in and of themselves but also have the potential to serve as a bridge for HIV transmission to heterosexual injecting drug users (IDUs) and non-IDU MSM. Promising directions for the epidemiology and prevention of HIV in this dual risk group will draw from cumulative research related to the epidemiology and prevention of HIV in MSM, IDUs, and noninjecting drug users.
