Chicago African-American Network Health Study.
The Chicago African-American Network Health Study
(CAANHS) also known as uConnect is a NIDA funded study of the effect of
social network dynamics on HIV risk of young (16-29 year old) Black men
who have sex with men (YBMSM) from the Southside of Chicago, carried out
in partnership with researchers at the University of Chicago. YBMSM
have the highest rate of new HIV infection of any single demographic
group in the U.S. in spite of similar or even lower levels of individual
risk than White MSM. CAANHS used Respondent Driven Sampling (RDS), a
network based rigorous chain referral sampling methodology for sampling
hard to reach populations, to recruit the largest single site sample of
YBMSM to date. More
