Onboarding Positives and PrEP Users to Engage Negatives (OPPEN): Peer-driven Education to Link YMSM of Color to PrEP
open to eligible males ages 18-29
Onboarding Positives and PrEP users to Engage Negatives (OPPEN) is an intervention to train young Latino and Black men who have sex with men (YMSM of color) living with HIV or using pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to promote PrEP use among HIV-negative YMSM of color in their social networks. This pilot randomized controlled trial will evaluate OPPEN's acceptability, feasibility, and preliminary effect on PrEP care engagement among YMSM of color.

Digital Health Feedback System (DHFS) for Longitudinal Monitoring of ARVs Used in HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
This study uses an ingestion sensor and a wearable sensor (worn as a patch on the skin), which are new Proteus Digital Health (PDH) technologies approved by the FDA, to collect information about patients taking their Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) medication for HIV prevention. The wearable sensor records information, which is uploaded wirelessly to a mobile device and then to a secure computer. Together the sensors and the mobile device transmitting the information to the study computer are called a digital health feedback system (DHFS), which gives healthcare providers information about when patients have taken their PrEP medication. The purpose of the study is to demonstrate that the DHFS is easy to use and acceptable to people taking PrEP; that patients will persist with its use; and that the system provides valid, accurate measures of adherence.
