The ECHOES survey for community health workers across Europe is now closed - we would like to sincerely thank all those who took part! A final report on the results of the ECHOES survey will be released in 2019.
ECHOES was online between September 2017 and January 2018. Our target population - community health workers (CHWs) - was defined as anyone who provides sexual health support around HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), to gay, bisexual and other MSM in community settings (not in a hospital or clinic). We defined sexual health support services as including specific activities relating to HIV, viral hepatitis, and other STIs (e.g. HIV/STI prevention activities and counselling, sexual health promotion, community based testing activities) as well other more general support services which may affect sexual health (e.g. activism, drug, alcohol or mental health services, education, support to people living with HIV, etc).
