Give another push for EMIS and ECHOES!

Both European surveys: EMIS2017 (for MSM) and ECHOES (for community health workers working with MSM) are still open. Both surveys are available in several different European languages.

ECHOES: We invite Community Health Workers who provide sexual health and support services for MSM in the EU and neighbouring countries to participate at www.echoessurvey.euThe deadline has been extended until 31 January 2018. Don’t forget that anyone who provides sexual health support to MSM in community settings (i.e. not in a hospital or a clinic) can participate in ECHOES – whether you are a medically trained professional, a counsellor or a lay-person, whether the work is done on a full-time, part-time or occasional basis, and whether the work is done on a paid or voluntary basis.
EMIS: We invite all men who have sex with men to contribute to this important survey about relationships, sex life, risks and precautions, and use of health services. You can access it here until 17 January 2018.

You are welcome to disseminate this information in your networks.

Both surveys are part of the ESTICOM project, please read more at https://www.esticom.eu/.

EATG has been a key partner in both projects. We have also used the data resulting from the previous round, EMIS2010, extensively to support our advocacy work over these years. ECHOES is new but equally important, and it will be followed up with a series of training sessions for community health workers across Europe to make them even better in what they do.
By participating, and by making sure that the survey reaches the widest possible audience of gay men and other men having sex with men, we can generate even better and more relevant datasets for our future work.
