Data

We believe that public sharing of data sets is important to science. SESH has conducted several online surveys among MSM in China. Find below more details and links to de-identified data sets, code books, and appropriate ways to attribute. This data sharing plan has been reviewed by the Guangdong Provincial STD Control Center IRB and the UNC IRB. If you would like to use one of these data sets, please email us at sesh@seshglobal.org
