Project Summary: In Iowa, men who have sex with other men (MSM) are disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic, and they accounted for 53% of people living with HIV in 2020. The Iowa Department of Public Health 2021 surveillance report revealed that, non-Hispanic Black/African Americans were over eight times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV than non-Hispanic White Iowans. This study seeks to identify the barriers (and potential solutions) to effective engagement and uptake of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) among Black/African American MSM in small urban areas in Iowa. The long-term goal of this project is to improve the health outcomes of Black/African MSM. Please contact Dr Oluwafemi Adeagbo if you have any questions about the project.
