Are you Eligible?

Crystal, Pleasures and Sex Between Men
INTERVIEWS FOR THIS PHASE HAVE NOW BEEN COMPLETED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST AND CHECK BACK HERE LATER FOR FURTHER UPDATES.

Eligibility

You can participate in this study if all of the criteria below apply to you:
You are a gay or bisexual man
You are 18 years or older
You have used crystal methamphetamine in the last 12 months (also known as crystal, meth, Tina, ice)

We are particularly interested in speaking with men who are living with or affected by both HIV and chronic hepatitis (hepatitis C or B).

Participation involves taking part in a confidential, conversational-style 1 hour face to face or telephone interview at a time of your choosing. To ensure we collect the responses accurately, we seek your permission to digitally record the interview using an audio-recorder.

You will be asked questions about your use of crystal and your sexual experiences, including how these help you to socialise (or not). It will take approximately 1 hour to complete. Some questions are personal and explicit, but you do not have to answer any questions that make you uncomfortable.

We will offer you $40 for your time and contribution.

If you would like to book an interview time please leave your contact information here and a researcher will call you back very soon.
