Here is the reference for alternating logistic regression:

V. Carey, S. L. Zeger, and P. Diggle. Modelling multivariate binary data with alternating logistic regressions. Biometrika, 80(3): 517-526, 1993.

In a nutshell, this permits you to model the marginal responses for multiple binary items together with the association (in terms of pairwise odds ratios) between them without making full distributional assumptions about the joint distribution (e.g., as with -biprobit-). I am not aware of any implementations in Stata. I, for one, would certainly be interested in using an implementation if there were one, and might also be interested in collaborating on building an implementation.

Only a partial answer to your question, sorry.
