Trial Purpose and Description
This study explores novel methods to assess how geographic and social contexts create unique profiles of risk for emerging adult HIV-negative men who have sex with men (MSM). HIV risk behaviors (sexual risk, substance use) are heavily influenced by geographic and social context of the neighborhoods that people live and frequent (e.g., crime; poverty; density of liquor stores, parks, churches, clinics).
We are looking for volunteers who identify as men between 18 – 30 years, who are HIV negative and have male sexual partners, living in small towns in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island.
