NYUCN receives $7.56 million NIH grant to research heterosexuals at high risk of HIV infection

specifically for African American and Latino HHR. "We also designed it to be easy to use in the future in health departments and community-based organizations, by making use of computerized interactive components that don't require staff time to facilitate, peer-delivered components, which participants deliver independently, and patient navigation, a flexible and individualized approach to managing a complex health care system," said Dr. Gwadz. The project will enroll 3400 HHR in central Brooklyn over the course of five years.

"The Department of Health has taken an active role in making sure all New Yorkers are offered HIV testing during medical encounters and then linked to care if they are found to be infected. Yet despite these efforts, the NHBS found that only a third of HHR had been tested in the past year. This suggests to us that in addition to the Department of Health initiatives we need active recruitment approaches to reach and engage people in their communities. Peer-driven interventions are powerful because they can simultaneously address both individual and social barriers," said Gwadz. "Participants also like peer-driven interventions, because it provides them with a chance to give back to the community and help others access needed services."

The NHBS studies are the main surveillance efforts funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These studies use both the peer referral method (respondent driven sampling), as well as individual recruitment of participants in select social venues at select times, called "venue based sampling." While both of these recruitment methods have been effective in reaching vulnerable populations, no one has yet directly compared their effectiveness and relative costs for identifying undiagnosed HIV infection in HHR. One aim of this study is to answer this important research question and therefore provide guidance to the public health community on the costs and relative merits of each recru
