Proposed Project Evaluating Locally-Developed HIV Prevention Interventions for AfricanAmerican MSM in Los Angeles (OMB Control No. 0920–0913, expires 01/15/ 2015)—Extension — National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Data on HIV cases reported in 33 U.S. states with HIV reporting indicate the burden of HIV/AIDS is most concentrated in the African-American population compared to other racial/ ethnic groups. Of the 49,704 AfricanAmerican males diagnosed with HIV between 2001 and 2004, 54% of these cases were among men who have sex with men (MSM). In Los Angeles County (LAC), the proportion of HIV/ AIDS cases among African-American males attributable to male-to-male sexual transmission is even greater (75%).

Unfortunately, in the third decade of the epidemic, very few of the available HIV-prevention interventions for African-American populations have been designed specifically for MSM. In fact, until very recently, none of CDC’s evidence-based HIV-prevention interventions had been specifically tested for efficacy in reducing HIV transmission among MSM of color. Given the conspicuous absence of (1) evidence-based HIV interventions and (2) outcome evaluations of existing AAMSM interventions, our collaborative team intends to address a glaring research gap by implementing a best-practices model of comprehensive program evaluation. The purpose of this project is to test, in a real-world setting, the efficacy of an HIV transmission prevention intervention for reducing sexual risk among African-American men who have sex with men in Los Angeles County. The intervention is a three-session, group-level intervention that will provide participants with the information, motivation, and skills necessary to reduce their risk of transmitting or acquiring HIV. The intervention is being evaluated using baseline, 3-month and 6-month follow up assessments. This project also intends to conduct in-depth qualitative interviews with a total of 36 men in order to assess the experiences with the intervention, elicit recommendations for improving the intervention, and to better understand the factors that place young African American MSM at risk for HIV. CDC is requesting approval for a 1year clearance to complete data collection. The data collection system involves screenings, limited locator information, contact information, baseline questionnaire, client satisfaction surveys, 3-month follow-up questionnaire, 6-month follow-up questionnaire, and case study interviews. An estimated 160 men will be screened for eligibility in order to enroll 80 additional men to reach the desired E:\FR\FM\21AUN1.SGM 21AUN1 49520 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 162 / Thursday, August 21, 2014 / Notices sample size of 528.

Background and Brief Description Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on ‘‘utilization of health care’’ in the United States. The National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) has been conducted annually since 1992. NCHS is seeking OMB approval to extend this survey for an additional three years and make minor modifications to survey questionnaires. The purpose of NHAMCS is to meet the needs and demands for statistical information about the provision of ambulatory medical care services in the United States. Ambulatory services are rendered in a wide variety of settings, including physicians’ offices and hospital outpatient and emergency departments. The target universe of the NHAMCS is in-person visits made to outpatient departments (OPDs), emergency departments (EDs), and ambulatory surgery locations (ASLs) of non-Federal, short-stay hospitals (hospitals with an average length of stay of less than 30 days) or those whose specialty is general (medical or surgical) or children’s general. NHAMCS was initiated to complement the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS, OMB No. 0920–0234), which provides similar data concerning patient visits to physicians’ offices. NAMCS and NHAMCS are the principal sources of E:\FR\FM\21AUN1.SGM 21AUN1
