HOME Study: Evaluation of a Combination Support Package to Increase Uptake of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis and HIV/STI Testing Among Young Black and Latino MSM in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
Home HIV self-testing has been FDA approved and allows users to read their own HIV test results at home, while home sexually transmitted infection (STI) test self-collection allows men to use a swab at home and mail it in for testing. The purpose of this study is to learn how Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) use these new testing options, a set of online support tools, and the option to test with someone to support them (a testing "buddy"). We will also evaluate whether the online tools help these men to connect with HIV prevention services such as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) if they test HIV negative, and to HIV care services if they test HIV positive.
