Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles of East Europeans in London (SALLEE)
A joint study between the UCL School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies (SSEES) and the UCL Centre for Sexual Health and HIV Research has been awarded a substantial grant, totaling almost £400,000, by the Medical Research Council (MRC). The grant is being used to fund the SALLEE study, which is researching the sexual attitudes and lifestyles of London's Eastern Europeans. The study, lec by Dr Fiona Burns (UCL Centre for Sexual Health and HIV Research), comes at a time when London is becoming home to increasing numbers of economic migrants from Central and Eastern Europe. The sexual and reproductive health needs of these mainly young, single workers have not been addressed until now, despite major increases in sexually transmitted infections across these regions. Professor Graham Hart, Director of the UCL Centre for Sexual Health and HIV Research, said: "SALLEE will help identify what we need to do to improve sexual health services for these young migrants. This is a great example of multidisciplinary collaboration working across UCL - we wouldn't have had this success without the expertise of colleagues in SSEES." Dr Robin Aizlewood, Director of UCL SSEES, said: "Drs Christopher Gerry and Richard Mole of SSEES are looking forward to working with Fiona and Graham on this project. The school is committed to collaboration with colleagues in biomedicine and other faculties on topics of mutual research and teaching interest."
