Feasibility of a community-level, multi-component intervention for Black MSM in preparation for a Phase IIB community-level randomized trial to test the efficacy of the intervention in reducing HIV incidence among Black MSM
The HPTN 061 study team is proud to share initial results from HPTN 061. HPTN 061 was a large multi-site study of HIV and black MSM conducted among 1553 participants in six U.S. cities. It is the first study to determine the rate of new HIV infection among such a large prospective cohort of U.S. black MSM. Please see the documents below for specific study details released to date. Ongoing and planned analyses of data from HPTN 061 will continue to make important contributions to understanding the HIV epidemic among black MSM for months and years to come. The study team wishes to express its gratitude to the study participants who generously volunteered their time and for the valuable contributions of the communities where the study was conducted, without which this research would not have been possible.
