Project Desire, in collaboration with the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene, is a mixed-methods investigation to better understand the recent increase in HIV incidence in young men who have sex with men (YMSM) in New York City. We also seek to develop and test HIV prevention messages tailored to this population. Project Desire will 1) document the patterns of sexual risk-taking behavior in a racially and ethnically diverse sample of YMSM in NYC, 2) develop a qualitative understanding of sexual-risk-taking in this population, and 3) determine the effectiveness of HIV prevention messages as well as the needs of YMSM with regard to prevention messaging.
