Preferences for a Mobile HIV Prevention App for Men Who Have Sex With Men

Publication Abstract

Goldenberg, Tamar, Sarah J. McDougal, Patrick S. Sullival, Joanne D. Stekler, and Rob Stephenson. 2014. "Preferences for a Mobile HIV Prevention App for Men Who Have Sex With Men." Journal of Medical Internet Research, 2(4): e47.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that sexually active men who have sex with men (MSM) in the United States test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) at least three times per year, but actual testing frequency is much less frequent. Though mHealth is a popular vehicle for delivering HIV interventions, there are currently no mobile phone apps that target MSM with the specific aim of building an HIV testing plan, and none that focuses on developing a comprehensive prevention plan and link MSM to additional HIV prevention and treatment resources. Previous research has suggested a need for more iterative feedback from the target population to ensure use of these interventions.
