Qualitative Study of Young Men's Perceptions of An HIV Prevention Intervention—New—1—National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention (NCHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CDC proposes to conduct a formative research study to examine how a CDC-funded, community-level HIV intervention study is perceived by, and has affected the lives of, the target population, young men ages 15-25. The goal of the study is to gain a better understanding of the relevance of an HIV prevention intervention to young men in three communities: Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Orange County, California; and West Hollywood, California.
A total of 90 young men will be interviewed; 30 from each of the three communities. Of the 30 participants selected for the study; 15 of them will have participated in an HIV intervention activity and 15 participants will not have participated in activity. CDC plans to recruit a total of 50 participants from local venues and screened them to determine eligibility for participation in the study. The objectives of the study will be to (1) explore how young men who have participated in HIV intervention activities have incorporated the knowledge and experience gained from their participation into their daily lives and (2) identify structural barriers to HIV prevention intervention activities. All participants will be interviewed by CDC staff. Each interview is estimated to take approximately 90 minutes to complete. In addition, screening of eligible participants for recruitment in the study is estimated to take approximately 15 minutes.
There are no costs to respondents.
