4024.0 Epidemiology of HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections

Tuesday, November 10, 2009: 8:30 AM
This session is composed of talks that will discuss HIV/AIDS and STI prevalence, risk behaviors, and interventions in a wide range of populations including people with disabilities, military personnel, gay and non-gay identified black MSM, and in rural areas. Comparing and contrasting HIV/AIDS and STI epidemiology among these populations promises to be enlightening.
Session Objectives: 1. Compare STD prevalence among people with and without disabilities using NHIS data from 2003-2007. 2. Describe how the internet and self-collected samples can offer a novel intervention method in rural and other populations. 3. Discuss the importance of distinguishing gay-identified from non-gay-identified black men who have sex with men.
