Development of an Adolescent HIV/STD Risk-of-Exposure Screen Instrument


Adolescent HIV/STD Risk-of-Exposure Screen Development—National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
This poster is being presented at the XV International AIDS Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, July 11-16, 2004. The goal of this 5-year, two-phase multisite project is to develop a reliable, valid, brief adolescent-appropriate HIV/STD risk scale in English- and Spanish-language versions. In Phase I, data are collected from eight clinical and educational field sites located in the United States. Survey data are collected via audio-CASI data collection software developed using QDS™ software. During Phase II of the project, adolescents will be drawn from sites that serve Spanish-speaking youth. NOVA has also received an international supplement to collaborate with South African researchers in developing a POSIT HIV/STD Risk Screen for Afrikaans-speaking adolescents. Procedures similar to those of Phase I will be followed for data collection and management.
