Men’s health survey geared to communities east of Surrey

They are interested in hearing from gay and bisexual men in Chilliwack, Abbotsford, and more to plan health service delivery

Gay and bisexual men living in Chilliwack and other communities east of Surrey are being asked to fill out an anonymous health survey.

It’s part of research-based community consultation project undertaken by Health Initiative for Men (HIM), based in Vancouver, in partnership with Fraser Health.

They are interested in hearing from men in Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley and more, and the results will help agencies plan for potential services in the various cities.

“At HIM, we recognize that gay and bi men living in the Fraser Health area face unique health issues and challenges,” according to the online appeal. “To help us understand how we can support the health and well-being of gay and bi men, we would appreciate you taking the time to complete the following survey.”

It asks questions like where the respondents get information about sexual health, or if they were aware how to obtain a confidential HIV test.

The survey is anonymous and takes about five to 10 minutes to fill out. No personal identifying information for subjects is required to participate. The survey is online at:
