Researchers at the Center for Sexual Health Promotionin conjunction with our academic and community partners, pursue a progressive research agenda in sexual health. Below are the some of the core areas within which our individual research projects fall.
To learn more about our work, visit our publications and presentations and feel free to contact our faculty and staff to learn more about individual projects. It includes the sexual experiences and condom-use behaviors of 5, adolescents and adults ages 14 to We continue to collect NSSHB data annually, often highlighting specific sexuality-related issues or sub-populations in various years. As prior research has demonstrated that bisexual individuals experience profound health disparities in comparison to both heterosexual and gay and lesbian individuals, we are dedicated to exploring the unique health issues faced by diverse bisexual populations, in direct response to calls for such resources from the Institute of Medicine and National Institutes of Health.
Health disparities among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and other sexual and gender minority people exist across the lifespan, and are increasingly well-documented, but gaps remain in our basic understanding of how health status, behaviors and outcomes vary within these groups, especially bisexual individuals.
These include higher rates of mood and anxiety disorders, substance use including tobacco usesuicidality, as well as disparities related to healthcare access and utilization. However, bisexual individuals remain relatively invisible in public health research except when studied almost exclusively through a lens of sexual risk behavior. Our work in this area involves co-directing the Bisexual Research Collaborative on Health BiRCHan ongoing multi-institutional scientific initiative focused on health and well-being among bisexual individuals.
Extant research has largely focused on identifying individual- and interpersonal-level risk factors for HIV infection among GBM; however, accumulating evidence also points to structural determinants of HIV outcomes in this population.
In particular, recent research has demonstrated that structural stigma defined as societal- level conditions, cultural norms, and institutional policies that constrain the resources and opportunities of stigmatized individuals is associated with adverse health outcomes, including HIV risk, among GBM. This will be the first and largest prospective study with a nationally representative sample of GBM specifically deed to: 1 examine whether structural forms of stigma related to sexual identity increase vulnerability to adverse HIV prevention outcomes e.
Men also face distinctive sexual health issues on the basis of their gender. For example, men comprise over half of those who are HIV infected worldwide and the majority of infections in women have been attributed to sexual activity with HIV positive men.
Public health entities, including the National Institutes of Health, have recently called for more research on gender and HIV risk. Creating safe and supportive environments is critically important for overall health and wellbeing among sexual and gender minority SGM youth. SGM youth are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience a wide range of health disparities and related difficulties.
Bisexual and transgender youth bear particularly disproportionate rates of these outcomes.
These findings suggest that SGM youth may be enmeshed in a web of synergistic epidemics syndemicsin which such disparities interact with one another in a chain reaction of negative health outcomes propelled by early life adversities including isolation, stigma, discrimination, lack of community, and trauma. However, many such health disparities and their outcomes have been shown to be buffered by protective factors that increase resiliency, especially social support mechanisms offered by SGM community and community-at-large attachments.
We are currently working on the development, implementation and sustainability of an academic-community initiative, the IU-Prism Health Partnership. To effectively promote sexual health requires that researchers seek to fully understand the complexity of human sexual expression within the context of the lived experiences of individuals and the communities in which they are embedded.
To accomplish this, our Center has remained committed to research that incorporates the principles of community based participatory research. Our students receive intensive training in the application of these principles to sexual health research and the vast majority of our work across all priority areas is grounded in participatory mechanisms.
We are also highly committed to sharing and dialoguing on our own, and our colleagues', scientific research with diverse communities using a innovative community-based mechanisms, including the Bloomington Sex Salon. Similarily, the U. Home Research.
