description:
Research objectives include measuring the implementation of the POL intervention, measuring exposure to the intervention, and correlating exposure with desired changes in health behaviors (primarily protected sexual intercourse and use of health services for STI and HIV testing) and selected determinants of these behaviors. During the time of intervention implementation and research, only two suitable venues where MSM congregate existed in Bucharest: clubs Impact and Queens. Therefore, the study employed a take-all approach without sampling; all eligible patrons of the clubs being surveyed were invited to participate in the survey. A baseline and two follow-up surveys were conducted (baseline and first follow-up report are available at www.psi.org/research/). The data collection during baseline took place over a period of five weekends, whereas the first and second follow-up surveys were carried out in six weekends in an effort to increase the number of study participants. The majority of eligible and willing respondents were captured.
