Rutgers University’s Center for Health, Identity, Behavior and Prevention Studies (CHIBPS) is currently carrying out an online survey examining the impact of COVID-19 on LGBTQ Communities in the United States.
The principal investigator of the study is the Dean of the Rutgers School of Public Health, Perry N. Halkitis, PhD, MS, MPH. According to Rutgers and CHIBPS, “the purpose of this study is to better understand how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the health of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) population in the United States.”
In particular, Halkitis and his team hope to understand how the pandemic has impacted employment status, living arrangements, sexual and substance use behaviors, and access to necessary health-related services or medications (e.g. PrEP, hormones, contraception, etc.) among other related topics.
They anticipate at around 5,000 participants will take part in the research.
