Study TitleNational AIDS education campaign benchmark survey 1986-1987: gay and bisexual men
Primary InvestigatorCommonwealth Department of Community Services and Health
ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.00567
AbstractIn the early 1980's the Commonwealth and State Governments moved rapidly to provide information to groups at high-risk of contracting the AIDS virus. The AIDS Task Force and NACAIDS then decided that a comprehensive education campaign to inform the public about AIDS was necessary. These studies (SSDA No. 564 - 569) were commissioned in 1986 to provide information to develop strategies for AIDS prevention education and to provide a benchmark against which to measure the effectiveness of the National AIDS Education Program. It was decided that the study should cover four groups - adults (the general population aged 16 to 60), adolescents (aged 12 to 15), homosexual and bisexual men, and intra-venous drug users. This study covers the homosexual and bisexual portion of the sample. This study was designed to collect qualitative information rather than quantitative. The data collected covered: levels of awareness of AIDS; knowledge of what constitutes high risk behaviour; knowledge why high risk behaviour increases the likelihood of transmitting AIDS; attitudes toward people with AIDS and high risk group stereotypes; barriers to absorbing information and changing behaviour; description of safe sex behaviours; use of safe sex; general and personal methods of containing the spread of AIDS in the community; sources of information on AIDS; current sexual and drug use behaviour; changes in behaviour since the advent of AIDS. Background variables include media consumption, sex, age, region, country of birth, language use, children in the house, marital status, household composition, education.

Methodology Content
Sampling ProcedureThe sample was a quota sample primarily based on networking in Sydney and Melbourne. Quotas were specified for the following subgroups: individuals in monogamous relationships of 2 years or more; monogamous relationships of less than 2 years; individuals either with multiple partners or averaging more than one relationship a month; not in a permanent relation averaging sexual contacts of less than one relationship a month; bisexuals. In this segment of the research an attempt was made to represent the hard-to-reach gay male, that is those in monogamous relationships and bisexuals. This sample is different from many others of the gay population which usually have relied on volunteer respondents often recruited from bars, discos and bath houses.
