Modeling the social context of microbicide use


Simons-Rudolph, A., Woodsong, C., & Koo, H. (2008). Modeling the social context of microbicide use. Microbicide Quarterly, 6(4), 1-11.


This paper introduces a Holistic Model of Acceptability and explores the potential of this model to identify the social context in which microbicides will likely be used once available. Data from qualitative in-depth interviews (n = 16) and quantitative surveys (n = 651) provide preliminary information. This effort represents a way to formally
model likely microbicide use and is a starting point for future modeling work. A revised model for predicting microbicide use is suggested at the conclusion of the paper.
