Face-to-face (FTF) interviews are often used to collect information on sexual and drug injecting behaviors from men who have sex with men (MSM) and men who inject drugs (MWID). However, stigma against these populations and the criminalization associated with these behaviors can make it difficult to receive accurate responses from subjects. Audio computer assisted self-interview (ACASI) has been introduced as a technique that may mitigate social desirability bias in this context. This study evaluated differences in the reporting of HIV-related risky behaviors by MSM and MWID using ACASI and FTF interviews.
