Development and Evaluation of a Multilevel, Socio-Culturally Contextualized Digital Health Decision Intervention to Reduce Medical Mistrust and Improve Status-Neutral HIV Service Use among HLMSM
Funded by: National Center for HIVAIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention
Project dates: September 2023 - August 2028
Principal Investigator: Guilamo-Ramos, Vincent

This two phased research study will conduct mixed-methods formative research and a 3-arm parallel explanatory randomized controlled trial to develop and evaluate a multilevel digital health intervention aimed at addressing medical mistrust and HIV service trustworthiness to improve status-neutral HIV service use among Hispanic/Latino gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (HLMSM).

All project activities will be developed in partnership with a Steering Committee and implemented across five key geographies — Los Angeles County, CA; Bronx County, NY; Bexar County, TX; Miami-Dade County, FL; and San Juan Municipio, PR — that align with Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) priority jurisdictions.
