Proposed Project Exploring HIV Prevention Communication Among Black Men Who Have Sex with Men In New York City: Project BROTHA—New—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and Tuberculosis Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description CDC is requesting OMB approval to administer a survey, conduct interviews and offer HIV rapid testing in Black Men who have sex with Men (BMSM) and other Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) in New York City. The purpose of the proposed study is to assess how interpersonal communication within BMSM social networks may be related to risk for HIV infection and attitudes towards HIV testing. Data collection will occur over the course of 2–3 years. After screening for eligibility, a total of 300 BMSM and other MSM in their social networks will be enrolled in 2 phases: (1) 350 BMSM will be recruited and screened to find 100 eligible BMSM participants, and (2) the 100 first phase participants will then recruit 200 other MSM within their social networks to participate in the second phase. Quantitative surveys will be administered by computers and personal interviews will be conducted to collect qualitative data (at baseline and 3-month follow-up). Participants in both phases will be offered rapid HIV testing, and declining an HIV test will not negatively impact their study participation. The research questions being explored are relevant for understanding how interpersonal communication with members of one’s social networks are related to risk for contracting HIV infection and attitudes towards HIV testing. This study will provide important epidemiologic information useful for the development of HIV prevention E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1
