The National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Mental Health has awarded a five-year, $5.9 million grant to the Medical College of Wisconsin to investigate new HIV prevention approaches for African-American men who have sex with men. The funds will support research that compares traditional testing, treatment, and counseling with a new social network-level intervention. The principal investigator is Jeffrey Kelly, professor of psychiatry and behavioral medicine, and director of MCW's Center for AIDS Intervention Research. More than 250 people took part in CAIR's recent conference, which featured presentations by several leaders in HIV prevention for black MSM. CAIR is one of five US HIV prevention research centers funded by NIMH.
