(DU MSM). This announcement seeks to stimulate research on the interrelationship
of HIV risk behaviors among DU MSM; causes and corresponding patterns of
high risk; the efficacy and effectiveness of behavioral and biological HIV
prevention interventions for diverse groups of DU MSM; and development and
evaluation of new behavioral therapies, drug abuse treatment approaches,
health services, and health care services delivery to DU MSM.

NIDA is encouraging a wide range of studies on the factors, processes,
and mechanisms associated with the onset, duration, clinical manifestations,
and treatment of the mental and physical health consequences of drug use.
Research may include general population-based, clinical epidemi-ologic,
clinical, and laboratory studies addressing the morbidity and mortality
of drug abuse. Parallel animal and human studies are encouraged.
