Populations/Projects: Young men who have sex with men (NHBS-YMSM)
Adolescent and young men who have sex with men are disproportionately affected by HIV. In 2015, NHBS conducted a pilot HIV behavioral surveillance project among adolescent sexual minority males (ASMM) 13 to 18 years of age, called National HIV Behavioral Surveillance among Young Men Who Have Sex with Men (NHBS-YMSM). Three U.S. metropolitan statistical areas (Chicago, IL; Philadelphia, PA; and New York City, NY) were funded to assess HIV prevalence and associated behaviors among ASMM and to identify the most effective sampling methods for this population.
