Abstract/Summary

This study was about risky alcohol use among Filipino men having sex with men (MSM). It aimed to understand the determinants of risky alcohol use as well as its association with risky sexual behavior and mental health status. In understanding these, this study employed a quantitative cross-sectional methodology using a survey. Afterward, descriptive statistics and logistic regression were done. A total of 223 adult Filipino MSM participated in this study. It found that a substantial portion of Filipino MSM in Metro Manila has experienced abuse, has risky alcohol use, depression, and anxiety. It was also found that these Filipino MSM have engaged with several sexual partners and unprotected sexual intercourse. It also found that risky alcohol use was associated with educational attainment but not with other sociodemographic characteristics. Likewise, risky alcohol use also had no association with abuses, depression, anxiety, number of sexual partners, and unprotected sexual intercourse.
