Structural Interventions, Alcohol Use, and Risk of HIV/AIDS (R01)

Description
Grant Amount: Unspecified.

This FOA encourages research on the effectiveness of structural interventions that reduce the risk of HIV/AIDS transmission by changing the environment of alcohol use. Although a variety of structural and environmental interventions have been employed successfully to reduce other drinking-related problems, there has been relatively little research that extends such efforts into the realm of HIV/AIDS risk reduction. Applicants are especially encouraged to examine the ramifications for HIV/AIDS risk—particularly among high-risk populations for HIV—of “naturally occurring” or already-announced changes in alcohol-related laws, regulations, programs or policies.

The role played by alcohol consumption as a facilitator of HIV/AIDS infection risk has been the subject of much research. A relationship between alcohol use and HIV/AIDS risk has been documented among men who have sex with men, adolescents, HIV-seropositive individuals, seriously mentally ill persons, and others.

This FOA focuses on intermediate-level factors that directly affect the drinking environment. Hence, applications appropriate for this announcement will assess the impacts on HIV/AIDS risk of changes in one or more features of the alcohol consumption environment, including—but not limited to—changes in:

the form of alcohol availability (e.g., the sale of distilled spirits by the individual drink; ban on beer keg sales to individuals).
alcohol server training programs;
access of underage persons to alcohol;
establishment/enforcement of curfews to limit hours of alcohol sales to young people, including restrictions on “happy hours” at alcohol-serving establishments;
alcohol counter-advertising campaigns;
retail prices of alcoholic beverages;
restrictions placed on alcohol advertisements;
enforcement of restrictions on public drinking;
establishment of Employee Assistance Programs implemented at work settings to aid workers in curbing their alcohol use and related problems;
local zoning of alcohol outlets;
screening, assessment, and referral for intervention/treatment for mental disorders, problem drinking, and HIV risk behavior;
physicians’ communication approaches with new HIV-positive patients concerning their alcohol use;
policies and procedures in drinking establishments that affect intoxication levels and/or the likelihood of engaging in subsequent hi-risk sex;
salience of warning labels on antiretroviral medications concerning drinking-associated risks.

The above list is not intended to be exhaustive. Prospective applicants might well consider evaluating a combination of such strategies in their project.
