Increasing HIV Testing and Re-testing among Emerging Adult ED Patients via Mobile Technology
Funded by: Center for Drug Use and HIV Research
Project dates: February 2014 - December 2015
Principal Investigator: Aronson, Ian

A tablet-based video intervention was developed specifically for emerging adults (aged 18-24), who initially decline offers of HIV testing in a Harlem area emergency department (ED). In addition, a mobile device follow-up protocol was developed to increase HIV re-testing rate among those who report behaviors that heighten HIV risk. Content was tailored to risk factors reported by participants during the intervention.
