Data from a pilot RCT trial (The MenSS trial) on youn men at risk of Sexually Trasmitted Infections (STIs). A total of 159 individuals were enrolled in trial: 75 in the control (t=1) and 84 in the active intervention (t=2). Clinical and health economic outcome data were collected via self-reported questionnaires at four time points throughout the study: baseline, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months follow-up. Health economic data include utility scores related to quality of life and costs, from which QALYs and total costs were then computed using the area under the curve method and by summing up the cost components at each time point. Clinical data include the total number of instances of unprotected sex and whether the individual was associated with an STI diagnosis or not. Baseline data are available for the utilities (no baseline costs collected), instances of unprotected sex, sti diagnosis, age, ethnicity and employment variables.
