Community Mobilization to Improve the HIV/AIDS Continuum of Care Among Black Men

HIV rates are at catastrophic levels Among young Black Men who have sex with Men (YBMSM). A study in 21 US cities found that 21% of YBMSM aged 18-29 were HIV+, compared to 9% of Latino and 7% of white young MSM (YMSM), and these disparities are worsening. YBMSM are more likely to be HIV-infected, less likely to be aware of their HIV-infection, and less likely to disclose that they are HIV-infected, relative to Men of other ethnic/racial groups.

CRUSH: Connecting Resources for Urban Sexual Health

The East Bay AIDS Center (EBAC) and the UCSF Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS) will work together to fight the HIV epidemic in California by meeting the need for high quality health care for young MSM of color in the eastern San Francisco Bay Area. The CRUSH (Connecting Resources for Urban Sexual Health) project will improve access to state-of-the art health care by combining cutting-edge research at CAPS and compassionate and welcoming services at EBAC.

Development and Validation of a Multidimensional Index of Engagement in HIV Care

Less than half of individuals living with HIV in the United States are receiving ongoing Care, and only one- quarter have an undetectable Viral Load. The National HIV/AIDS Strategy prioritizes Care and treatment of HIV- infected individuals, yet improvement in Care retention rates is clearly needed. Research on HIV Care has used attendance at primary Care appointments to assess whether Patients are in Care.

Development of a Couple-Based Mobile Health Intervention

Compared to other racial/ethnic groups in the US, black men who have sex with men (MSM), once diagnosed, are less likely to be optimally engaged in HIV care and treatment. This undermines the promise of recent prevention approaches for reducing the disproportionate effects of HIV/AIDS on Black communities, emphasizing the urgency for increased Research focus and Intervention Development.
