Substance Use Measure Identification Tool

The Substance Use Scientific Committee (SUSC) at the HPTN has developed a Web-based, interactive Substance Use Measurement Identification (SUMI) tool to assist researchers to identify the proper measures and survey behavioral tools to assess substance use in the setting of HIV. Based on the parameters entered by the user, the tool will list appropriate survey instruments relevant to particular substance use domains that the user plans to measure. This free, Web-based tool is available to researchers around the globe.
