Title of Collaborative Activity:

Health and Human Services Federal Interagency Working Group (FIW) - National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) Indicators: Young Men who have Sex with Men (YMSM)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Three Federal Interagency Working Groups (FIWs) were formed to address the lack of progress on some of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) performance indicators. This subgroup is led by Drs. David Purcell of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Susannah Allison of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Timothy Harrison of the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy (OHAIDP). The FIW charge is to address the lack of progress regarding NHAS Indicator 3 (Reduce the percentage of young gay and bisexual men who have engaged in HIV-risk behaviors by at least 10 percent); further, the FIW is charged with reviewing the literature and developing two logic models to help illustrate how to improve upon these two indicators. The logic models are designed to capture inputs and outputs from a 30,000-foot level and drive a longer conversation about what we are doing right and where we are falling short.
