The purpose of this study is to provide an assessment of the key health behaviors, determinants, and exposure to PSI programming among men who have sex with men (MSM) in eight regions of the Russian Federation, where PSI is implementing a Global Fund-funded project (Globus) targeting MSM. The survey was conducted in the capitals of the following regions: Vologda, Kazan, Krasnoyarsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Orenburg, Pskov, St Petersburg and Tomsk. The baseline survey in 2006 used time-location sampling; due to low response rates the follow-up in 2008 used respondent-driven sampling (RDS). Sample size was calculated for all the regions together. The baseline was a single-stage cluster sample, with locations where MSM congregate defined as clusters. The number of respondents to be selected was proportionate to cluster size. In every region the estimates of the number of MSM per cluster were calculated as a part of mapping exercise conducted prior to data collection. The follow-up in 2008 used the clusters defined in 2006 to select seeds (initial respondents). In large metropolitan centers (where the estimated number of total MSM in more than 20,000) four recruitment waves were completed. In smaller locations the estimated number of MSM is below 10,000, and three recruitment waves were completed. A total of 539 and 1113 interviews respectively were completed for the baseline and follow-up studies. Anal yses consisted of logistic regression and anovas to examine trends over time, to ascertain which determinants are correlated with key behaviors, and to examine the association between program exposure and changes in health behaviors and determinants. Socio-demographic characteristics and geographic location were controlled for in the analyses
