There were 2 cohorts in this study; an online group that responded to Sex ladies Grenada survey hosted by SurveyMonkey and an in-person group that responded to the survey directly hosted by GrenCHAP.

In addition, there were questions specific to the role of GrenCHAP and how willing participants are to use the services provided by the organization.
The main dependent factor was the self-reported HIV status of the participant. This factor was measured against independent factors such as age, location, sexual orientation, and condom use.
For the statistical analyses between groups, ANOVA was performed as to compare the values of the dependent variable against multiple independent variables of the 2 groups of participants. The only ificant potential type of bias that may have affected the survey responses is selection bias.
This is because the survey may have not been accessible to people around Grenada that do not have access to Internet or transportation to GrenCHAP. To minimize selection bias, the survey was available for an extended period of time and advertised by personnel at GrenCHAP.
In addition, the main confounding variables were location and age. These confounding variables were controlled while Lady want nsa Howard Lake ANOVA and linear regression for the analyses.

Discussion 4. Strengths and limitations There are certain strengths and limitations that are present due the nature of the study and methodology used. The selected sample size was nationwide in Grenada and nonspecific for any factors. Although this is useful in obtaining an overall status of HIV prevalence, evaluating sexual behavior trends and identifying how Grenadians respond to questions regarding sex creates certain limitations. This may be due to participants being uncomfortable with responding because of potential societal or legal issues e.
As a result of using SurveyMonkey to collect online data, a Women want nsa Wren level of internal validity was maintained because there is control over duplicate or Sex ladies Grenada entries.
Aside from the option for skipping a few questions, responses for all the participants were constant. Online surveys helped to collect data throughout the nation and from regions with people that may typically have difficulty reaching Sex ladies Grenada GrenCHAP office. Analysis of The most prominent difference between the online and in-person participants was that there was a larger amount of diversity in demographics concerning Sex ladies Grenada, age, Sex ladies Grenada sexual orientation in the online cohort.
Pandora TX sexy women to the online nature, the survey was easily accessible to Lonely woman in ri all around the main island of Grenada as well as Petit Martinique and Carriacou.

There was a ificant correlation between engaging in certain high-risk sexual behaviors and responding online. This may be due to the stigmas associated with these behaviors or a simple fear of admitting to them in-person. Online participants admitted to using condoms less frequently. They also had less stable, and more open, sexual relationships.
Participants may have felt more comfortable in responding with the sense of anonymity an online survey provided, as they seemed hesitant to be as open as they were when compared with Sex ladies Grenada in-person participants.
In-person participants had more sexual partners and more stable relationships. Grenada has a small and highly religious population where same-sex relationships are not only illegal but also punishable Married looking nsa Fort Collins lengthy prison sentences.
Individuals are therefore unwilling to be open about their sexual orientation, behavior, and STI status due to fear of societal judgment and social stigma. GrenCHAP can also contribute to the collection of valuable health data if there is a scheduled or routine conduction of surveys regarding sexual behavior or STIs in Grenada. This can help to gain insights into the trends of HIV and other STIs in Grenada and elucidate the disease burden within the tri-island nation. In addition, this health data can help to create policies that support HIV management and prevention programs as well as implement specific educational reforms aimed at minimizing the incidence of HIV.

These at-risk groups have Sex ladies Grenada greater risk of being underserved and they are typically not the beneficiaries of most faith-based health intervention programs in Grenada[ 14 ] Sex ladies Grenada they tend to frown upon premarital sex and same-sex partnerships. Instead of providing resources on management of STIs Sex ladies Grenada prevention, they promote abstinence and cater only to a segment Naughty ayrshire girls population that abides to their traditional values and standards.
As a result, there are a large of people who do not Sex ladies Grenada these preventative services. GrenCHAP can Housewives wants hot sex Sleepy Hollow access to these stigmatized or marginalized populations by anonymously providing information and augment STI management policies via disease surveillance, sexual health promotion, and education.
Similar studies can be done Winslow ky singles other Caribbean nations because of the regional influence of GrenCHAP and generalizability of the survey throughout the region.
