Young Men's Health and Behavior Research Guide

Guide for Conducting Research on the Formulation of Sexual and Health-Related Behaviour among Young Men

This instruction manual on conducting research on the gender- and sexuality-related perceptions of teenage boys and young men describes how to conduct studies of reproductive health behaviors using "social and sexual scripting": organizing and linking together what people think, what they do, and how they are affected by the sociocultural context in which they live, through accumulated responses to a multiplicity of socio-cultural cues. It includes sections on training of interviewers and facilitators, guides for focus group discussions and interviews, data analysis through key themes and thematic analysis, and resources.
