Abstract

Data has shown that the MSM community has the highest percentage increase of new HIV cases. The goals for this project were to reduce HIV transmission and improve the effectiveness of HIV prevention programs particularly with the Latino/ Hispanic MSM community of Omaha. Specifically, the purpose of this project was to conduct a needs assessment with the Latino/ Hispanic MSM to identify: 1) where member of the population gather or congregate, 2) what modes of communication are most efficient for reaching members of the priority population; 3) what type of messages are most appropriate for individuals of the priority population, and 4) identify facilitators/ barriers to engagement in HIV prevention and testing. In order to meet our goals, Community Navigators and focus groups were utilized.
