Overview
  • Background
  • Project Objectives
  • Description of MyPeeps
  • Unique Aspects of MyPeeps

3
Background
  • Young men who have sex with men (YMSM),
    especially those who are African American, Latino
    or European American, are disproportionately
    infected by HIV (CDC, 2005)
  • Between 99-03, decreased incidence in YWSM, but
    increased incidence among YMSM (Rangel et al.,
    2006)

4
Background
  • Rates of incidence continue to increase among
    YMSM between 13-24 (Hall et al., 2007)
  • Yet, little attention has been paid to the design
    and implementation of theoretically-driven,
    culturally and developmentally appropriate HIV
    preventive interventions for YMSM (Harper, 2007)

5
Study Objectives
  • Stage 1 To explore factors that uniquely
    influence HIV transmission among a group of key
    informants (i.e., 18-24 year-old YMSM who
    acquired HIV between 16-20 through sexual
    activity with other males)
  • Stage 2 (current stage) To develop, pilot, and
    refine a comprehensive HIV primary prevention
    program for 1620 year-old ethnically-diverse
    YMSM
  • Stage 3 To test the intervention in RCT
    (control TBD)

6
What is MyPeeps?
  • HIV Preventive Intervention for YMSM (aged 16-20)
  • Focused on Harm-reduction
  • Manualized Curriculum (cognitive-behavioral)
  • Group-based (10 participants per group)
  • 6 Sessions across 3 Weeks
  • Pre- and Post-test Surveys

Funded by Natl Institute of Mental Health
