  • HIV risk behavior and substance use: Syndemic production in high risk youth The goal of this study is propose a developmental interpretation and application of syndemics theory.This theory postulates that in order to understand how interacting behavioral health problems such as HIV risk behavior and substance use unfold over time, one must study them simultaneously, and longitudinally, to explain how and when they emerge and converge. We want to examine substance use and HIV risk behaviors longitudinally in adolescents. This study includes many features such as 1) longitudinal, quasi-experimental design, 2)evaluation of individual growth or change in adolescent substance use and risky sexual behaviors over time, 3) examination of mediators and moderators of risk for substance use and risky sexual behavior, and 4) identification of risk and protective factors associated with the convergence of these multiple emerging epidemics.
