Get Connected: STD prevention among young men who use the e-technologies (phones, websites) to meet partners

About

This study builds on the Project Connect Health Systems Intervention, adapting and piloting an online intervention (CONNECT-YM) that increases YMSM's HIV/STI awareness, and helps them identify culturally-competent sexual health providers where they may test for HIV/STIs.

Aims

Specific Aim 1. Examine the acceptability and feasibility of a tailored, web-based STI/HIV testing awareness intervention (CONNECT-YM) for YMSM in Southeast Michigan.

Specific Aim 2. Test whether the CONNECT-YM intervention increases YMSM's HIV/STI awareness and testing behaviors at 30-day follow-up, respectively, as compared to the control condition.

Participants

This pilot study will enroll 180 young men who have sex with men in SE Michigan.
