Here’s an invitation from Sigma Research who specialise in research on HIV and sexual health.
They have three new online national surveys open to UK residents. The surveys are aimed at investigating the sexual health of the UK adult population.
Vital Statistics 2007 is an online version of the Gay Mens Sex Survey. Results are used to plan and implement HIV prevention programmes.
Bass Line 2007, is a survey aimed at African people living in England. Results will be used to help organisations working with African communities in the UK improve their sexual health provision. The survey is available in either English or French.
What do you need? 2007 is a UK-wide needs assessment for people diagnosed with HIV. The survey is available in English or French.
If you are a member of the public and want to complete the survey
If you are a member of the public there are two ways you can complete the survey. You can either complete them online, or if you prefer you can order a paper version in booklet format. If you would like to complete the paper version of the survey please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll arrange for a booklet to be sent to you. Bass Line is available in English or French booklets – please tell me which version you need.
If you are a health provider, educator, therapist, or researcher
You can also help by letting potential participants know about the survey, forwarding the website links, or distributing paper (booklet) versions of the survey. If you can help please contact Gary Hammond (Gary.Hammond@sigmaresearch.org.uk) for more details.
Please feel free to forward this information/blog on to others you think will be interested. Remember the surveys are only open to UK residents.
The surveys will be running all through the summer.
