Title: Examining Racial and Ethnic Minority Differences among YMSM during Recruitment for an Online HIV Prevention Intervention Study

Subject(s): YMSM HIV prevention online intervention research engagement Keep it Up!
Abstract: HIV disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minority young men who have sex with men (YMSM). HIV prevention research does not include these YMSM commensurate to their HIV burden. We examined racial and ethnic differences during a unique three-step recruitment process for an online, YMSM HIV prevention intervention study (N=660). Step one was completed in-person; steps two and three online. Fewer Black and Latino YMSM completed step two – initiating online participation – than White YMSM. Internet use frequency accounted for the Latino vs. White difference in initiating online participation, but not the Black vs. White difference. Future online HIV prevention interventions recruiting diverse YMSM should focus on initiating online engagement among Black participants.
