A Network Intervention for Reducing Sexual Risk for HIV With African American Men Who Have Sex With Men (AA MSM)
A Network Intervention for Reducing Sexual Risk for HIV With African American Men Who Have Sex With Men (AA MSM)

The purpose of the study is to examine the efficacy of a network-oriented "outreach intervention" to reduce HIV and sexually transmitted infection (STI) related risk behaviors among African American men who have sex with men (AA MSM)and their social network. The hypothesis is to determine whether the new intervention is more efficacious at reducing high risk sexual behaviors than the standard normal of care provided to the public (a single session of individual HIV counseling and testing.

The intervention increases participants' personal level of knowledge and skills concerning HIV prevention and inspires participants to diffuse the information to their social network.
