The goals of this article are to (a) summarize and discuss published empirical studies addressing HIV seroprevalence rates and HIV-related behaviors and cognitive factors among Asian and Pacific Islander American (API) men who have sex with men (MSM) in the United States, (b) examine existing population-based research methodologies for studying HIV and AIDS prevention, (c) describe a conceptual framework to facilitate the identification of ecologically sound or culturally appropriate and competent methodologies for studying HIV prevention among API MSM, and (d) discuss methodological issues and recommend alternative methodologies to better understand this population in HIV prevention.
A total of eight published empirical studies reported the HIV seroprevalence rates, HIV-risk behaviors, and attitudes toward HIV and AIDS among API MSM.
Specifically, seven studies reported HIV seroprevalence rates that were based on either self-disclosure of HIV status or HIV test results among the study participants.
Four studies also reported findings about the relationships between HIV-related behaviors and cognitive factors.
There are five population-based databases on HIV and AIDS epidemiology and surveillance which have been managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Findings from the seven studies indicate that API MSM are as likely to engage in HIV-risk behaviors as other groups. (...)
