Beirut community will receive the multi-component intervention Mpowerment; the community cohort of YMSM will be used to evaluate the effects of the intervention on the community, as the cohort participants may or may not have participated in the intervention.
MP is a multi-level intervention that reaches out to all YMSM in a community by mobilizing men to encourage their friends to reduce risk behavior and join the program (informal outreach), along with holding social activities that promote safe sex (formal outreach). MP provides YMSM with skills, support and confidence to find solutions within themselves for sexual health, and seeks to affirm the validity and rights of same-sex behavior and identities.
