Here are some of the selected key findings from the SNAP Project.
- 11 (39%) Caucasian
- 10 (36%) African-American
- 4 (14%) Latino
- 2 (7%) Native American
- 1 (4%) Asian/Pacific Islander
Average age: 34 years old. Time since seroconversion averaged 2 years.
Analysis of the SNAP interview data is ongoing.
Analysis of Themes
- Interviews were taped and transcribed verbatim
- Investigators read all of the interviews, discussed each one and noted themes that were raised in the partcipant’s stories
- Interviewers independently rated themes to select the most prevalent
The following themes have emerged in the data:
Analysis of Narrative Types
- Each interview was read by at least two investigators and given a descriptive title
- A list of narrative types was derived by consensus
- Each interview was assigned all types that apply by consensus based on their titles and content
Analysis of P3 Types
- Text addressing prevention as an HIV+ man was extracted from each of interview to assess the range of strategies respondents were using to decrease transmission risk
- We are currently refining our typology of prevention strategies
Next Steps in Analysis
Next the data team will look at the data for two major themes
- Relationship between Narrative Type and prevention strategies as an HIV+ man
- Implications for interventions and future research
Other Presentations of Findings
We have also produced a poster (from the Annual Meeting of the American Psychological Association 2004, Honolulu, HI) and a PowerPoint presentation(from the 4th Annual CAPS Conference, 2004, San Francisco, CA) of our preliminary findings.
