Minnesota: AIDS Fight Turns to Virtual Outreach
August 3, 2012
Traditional HIV prevention outreach at gay bars and information in print media are losing their relevance in a world of social media and online meet-up sites, according to University of Minnesota (UM) researchers.
"The challenge in online HIV prevention is designing something that's engaging and interesting," said Simon Rosser, lead researcher and director of the university's HIV/STI Intervention and Prevention Studies Program. "If no one comes to your programs, it's a problem." Less than half of about 2,700 MSM surveyed had ever attended an offline HIV seminar.
