Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request, 4208-4209 [2018-01683]

Download as PDF 4208 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 20 / Tuesday, January 30, 2018 / Notices seeks to evaluate the efficacy of TLC, which provides combination (biomedical, behavioral and social/ structural) HIV prevention and care services to adult transgender women at high risk for HIV infection, in a culturally specific and accessible environment. The information collected will help evaluate whether the TLC intervention is an effective HIV-prevention strategy by assessing whether exposure to TLC services results in improvements in participants’ health and HIV prevention behaviors. In addition, CDC will assess whether intervention participants’ behaviors significantly change from baseline to 4 and 8-month follow-up periods. CDC will conduct the study in the TLC program’s home base of Chicago, Illinois. The study population will include 150 HIV-negative adult transgender women living in the Chicago metropolitan area. Participants will be at least 18 years of age; selfidentify as transgender, transsexual, women and/or female whom had assigned male sex at birth; and have a self-reported history of sex with men in the past four months. The study population will also include 10 TLC staff members. Staff members will be CDC will also examine intervention experiences through semi-structured interview with 20 of the 150 TLC participants and 10 TLC staff members involved in the delivery of services through the TLC intervention. The interviews will capture participants and staff views about the TLC implementation process, the process through which the TLC intervention influences HIV risk behavior, and the role of the intervention in addressing social determinates of health (housing, employment, legal issues, health care access). CDC expects that 50% of transgender women screened will meet study eligibility and the initial screening to take approximately four minutes to complete. It will take respondents one minute to provide contact information. On three occasions, CDC will administer the assessment to 150 participants. The assessment will take 60 minutes (1 hour) to complete. On a single occasion, CDC will administer the interview to 30 participants (20 intervention participants and 10 TLC staff). The interview will take 60 minutes (1 hour) to complete. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 252. adults, involved in the delivery of TLC intervention services. CDC anticipates enrollment of a diverse sample of transgender women comprised mainly of racial/ethnic minority participants under 35 years of age, consistent with the current TLC program and the epidemiology of HIV infection among transgender women. Intervention participants recruited to the study through a combination of approaches, including traditional print advertisement, referral, in-person outreach, and through word of mouth. TLC staff members will randomly selected to participate in the evaluation. CDC will use a quantitative assessment to collect information for this study. Researchers will deliver the assessment at the time of study enrollment and again at 4-month and 8month follow-ups. CDC will use the assessment to measure changes in sexual risk behavior including condom use and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) care engagement. Intervention mediators, including gender affirmation, collective self-esteem and social support, and intervention satisfaction measured. Participants will complete the assessment at baseline and again at 4- and 8-month follow-ups after joining the TLC program.
