    PROJECT ABSTRACT

    Heterosexual transmission in the United States accounts for approximately 9,000 HIV seroconversions per year, with many of these infections due to sex with injection drug users. Backcalculation data suggest that HIV incidence among heterosexual young adults (particularly among Blacks and Puerto Ricans) is growing. Infection with HIV among youth could increase even more rapidly if more become drug injectors; if sexual network connections with drug injectors become denser or closer; if sexual risk behaviors increase; or if untreated STDs proliferate and enhance transmission. In many neighborhoods, children and teenagers grow up in environments with large numbers of drug injectors, often including close relatives and friends. In some of these neighborhoods, including Bushwick (where the study will be conducted), at least 30% of IDUs are infected with HIV. In spite of this worrisome background, our research has shown that, in Bushwick at least, both drug injection (0.4%) and HIV infection (0.2%) remain rare among young adults. It is clearly important to determine what lies behind this good news. We propose to answer this question by interviewing and collecting blood and urine from 900 subjects, who will consist of the extended sexual and injection networks of (a) Bushwick IDUs , (b) persons who participate in group sex, and (c) a representative sample of young Bushwick non-IDU adults. HIV, hepatitis B and C, HSV-1 and -2, syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia infection will be assayed. Interviews will cover sexual and drug behaviors and partnerships, and peer norms towards drug use, sex, group sex, and sex with IDUs. Ethnography will assist in understanding context and in recruiting network members. These data will be used to determine:
  • (1) how sociometric sexual network characteristics are related to infection with HIV and other STIs;
  • (2) how sexual networks and peer norms are interrelated;
  • (3) how norms and networks are related to risk behaviors;
  • (4) what individual characteristics predispose young adults to be in hig and/or to have peers with high-risk norms about sex or drugs;
  • (5) what sex partners know about each other, and how this affects condom use; and
  • (6) characteristics of young adults who have sex with IDUs (and vice versa), and of sero-discordant couples, that can assist prevention. This knowledge will be applied to developing policy and programs for HIV and STD prevention.

    PROJECT ABSTRACT

    Heterosexual transmission in the United States accounts for approximately 9,000 HIV seroconversions per year, with many of these infections due to sex with injection drug users. Backcalculation data suggest that HIV incidence among heterosexual young adults (particularly among Blacks and Puerto Ricans) is growing. Infection with HIV among youth could increase even more rapidly if more become drug injectors; if sexual network connections with drug injectors become denser or closer; if sexual risk behaviors increase; or if untreated STDs proliferate and enhance transmission. In many neighborhoods, children and teenagers grow up in environments with large numbers of drug injectors, often including close relatives and friends. In some of these neighborhoods, including Bushwick (where the study will be conducted), at least 30% of IDUs are infected with HIV. In spite of this worrisome background, our research has shown that, in Bushwick at least, both drug injection (0.4%) and HIV infection (0.2%) remain rare among young adults. It is clearly important to determine what lies behind this good news. We propose to answer this question by interviewing and collecting blood and urine from 900 subjects, who will consist of the extended sexual and injection networks of (a) Bushwick IDUs , (b) persons who participate in group sex, and (c) a representative sample of young Bushwick non-IDU adults. HIV, hepatitis B and C, HSV-1 and -2, syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia infection will be assayed. Interviews will cover sexual and drug behaviors and partnerships, and peer norms towards drug use, sex, group sex, and sex with IDUs. Ethnography will assist in understanding context and in recruiting network members. These data will be used to determine:
  • (1) how sociometric sexual network characteristics are related to infection with HIV and other STIs;
  • (2) how sexual networks and peer norms are interrelated;
  • (3) how norms and networks are related to risk behaviors;
  • (4) what individual characteristics predispose young adults to be in hig and/or to have peers with high-risk norms about sex or drugs;
  • (5) what sex partners know about each other, and how this affects condom use; and
  • (6) characteristics of young adults who have sex with IDUs (and vice versa), and of sero-discordant couples, that can assist prevention. This knowledge will be applied to developing policy and programs for HIV and STD prevention.
