Assessment of a New Web-Based Sexual Concurrency Measurement Tool for Men Who Have Sex With Men

Publication Abstract

Rosenberg, Eli S., Richard B. Rothenberg, David G. Kleinbaum, Rob Stephenson, and Patrick S. Sullivan. 2014. "Assessment of a New Web-Based Sexual Concurrency Measurement Tool for Men Who Have Sex With Men." Journal of Medical Internet Research, 16(11): e246.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) are the most affected risk group in the United States' human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic. Sexual concurrency, the overlapping of partnerships in time, accelerates HIV transmission in populations and has been documented at high levels among MSM. However, concurrency is challenging to measure empirically and variations in assessment techniques used (primarily the date overlap and direct question approaches) and the outcomes derived from them have led to heterogeneity and questionable validity of estimates among MSM and other populations.
