Sexual Health and Families Programme

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow

Abstract

Sexual health is a major public health priority, primarily because of rising sexually transmitted infections, HIV, and unwanted pregnancies. In developed countries certain groups suffer much worse sexual health, especially men who have sex with men, particular ethnic minorities and socially excluded young people. We are trying to find out what social and behavioural factors are associated with sexual risk behaviours, such as not using condoms, and are exploring new ways to reduce sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. In the UK, men who have sex with men and some sub-Saharan African communities are at particular risk of HIV and our research focuses on HIV prevention within these groups. As with many health outcomes, those from deprived areas are often those most at risk of poor sexual health and we are trying to find out why this is the case and what could be done to reduce these inequalities. Sexual health can be a sensitive topic and our research relies on people’s willingness to participate so we are also exploring what types of sexual behaviour research people are willing to take part in, and how to make better use of existing data, such as those collected by sexual health clinics.

Technical Summary

In the last two decades sexual health has been a major public health priority across the world, primarily because of rising sexually transmitted infections, HIV, and unwanted pregnancies. There are continuing inequalities in sexual health, with marginalised groups (i.e., men who have sex with men, particular ethnic minorities and socially excluded young people) being disproportionately affected. The aim of the programme is to further the prevention of sexual ill health by understanding the determinants of sexual risk and conducting formative (i.e. preliminary or developmental) research to inform future intervention development. These are essential steps in the development of future sexual ill health prevention interventions and evaluations and to the delivery of these in ‘real world’ situations. The objectives are to: • understand the social and behavioural determinants of sexual risk and ill health; • investigate alternative research methodologies and the role of new technologies in sexual ill health prevention; and • develop and evaluate innovate strategies to improve sexual health at the individual, community and structural levels. The programme has three themes: 1. HIV prevention with vulnerable populations in the UK (gay and bisexual men and sub-Saharan African communities): 30 years into the HIV epidemic, there remains no cure or vaccine and 34 million people worldwide are estimated to be infected. This theme builds on the Unit’s past research, specifically the Gay Men’s Sexual Health Survey, while investigating new areas of concern. There have been exciting, but challenging, developments in HIV prevention (e.g., the use of antiretroviral drugs for the prevention of sexual transmission of HIV). The acceptability of these interventions to populations at risk is relatively unknown and is a key area we are investigating. 2. Inequalities in sexual health: As with many health outcomes, sexual health is patterned by socioeconomic inequalities, with those from deprived areas often being those most at risk of negative outcomes, such as sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. This theme aims to explore the broad, negative sexual health related experiences of those in the most deprived areas, including the role of masculinities within these, and to use this information to inform the development of future sexual health interventions to reduce inequalities. 3. Alternative research methodologies in sexual ill health prevention: Sexual health can be a sensitive topic and our research relies on people’s willingness to participate, and the continual growth of digital media for social interaction and intervention opportunities also suggest the time is right to consider alternatives to our existing surveys. This theme aims to investigate the acceptability of different research methods and examines how to make better use of existing data, such as those collected by sexual health clinics.

Title Gay Men's Sexual Health Survey 
Description The Gay Men's Sexual Health Survey was designed with Paul Flowers (Caledonian University) and Graham Hart (SPHSU and now University College London) to examine changes in gay men's sexual behaviour over time, and to further understand the HIV epidemic in Scotland. The survey has been conducted every three years since 1996. Since 2005, we have also collected oral fluid samples to be tested anonymously for HIV to improve the estimate of HIV prevalence and undiagnosed infection in this population. The data set now includes 7 waves of data, collected every 3 years between 1996 and 2014.

Title Gay Men's Sexual Health Survey 
Description Repeat cross-sectional surveys in gay bars in Glasgow and Edinburgh have been conducted every three years since 1996. Since 2005, the survey has included the collection of anonymous oral fluid samples to be tested for HIV antibodies. These surveys are the largest undertaken with gay men in Scotland and provide data on sexual risk and health-seeking behaviours. The last was undertaken in 2014.

Results and Impact The Abortion Act was passed in 1967 and marked the beginning of safe, legal abortion provision in Scotland, England and Wales. This one day event marked the 50th anniversary year of the Act, and explored the past, present and future of abortion in Scotland. 80 delegates from across the UK attended the event, which comprised talks from researchers, practitioners and campaigners, and which culminated in a roundtable discussion on the future of abortion provision in Scotland (which included a representative from Scottish Government). The event sparked significant discussion, including engagement from ISD on how they will report abortion statistics in future. There was also dignificant interest/engagement on social media (storify available here: https://storify.com/CarriePMcD/the-abortion-act-at-50-still-disputed-ground ) and future collaboration amongst attendees is being taken forward via a virtual network. A written briefing on the day will also be produced before the end of 2017.

Summary: This work constitutes a public engagement project sponsored by the Wellcome Trust as part of their yearlong "Sexology Season". Commencing from autumn 2014, and being led by the Wellcome Trust, this season of work involves a variety of projects, which will link to "The Institute of Sexology Exhibition" being held in London at the Wellcome Trust. One of these embedded projects is a young people's participatory research and song writing project. Groups of young people (aged 16-25) years work with researchers at various UK 'hubs' to explore their own questions around sex and sexual health and respond to this creatively through song writing. The specific focus of the Glasgow Hub to focus on minority sexualities (LGBT). The researchers work with the young people to develop research skills and carry out a small-scale research project.
The project culminated in a performance at the Roundhouse in London in Feb 2015, where the young people who had participated in the project were able to perform the songs they had written, and also hear the songs from other 'hubs'. The audience was comprised of staff from the Wellcome Trust, family and friends, third sector organisations and the media The performance was also advertised on social media, and streamed live to reach a wider audience. The young people from the Glasgow hub were able to attend the Wellcome Trust 'Sexology' exhibition and two of the songs they wrote were chosen for inclusion on a 'listening post' within the exhibition space. Members of the public were able to listen to the songs that the young people had written and recorded and these will be archived by the Wellcome Trust.
