A total of 8.6% reported being HIV-positive and 14.8% reported never having been tested for HIV.
and implemented in northwestern North Carolina within a catchment area of more than 1.3 million people. Two interventionists were recruited and trained to enter local chat rooms.
The interventionists self-identified as gay; one was African American and aged 28 years and the other was white and aged 24 years.
Grounded theory analysis of transcripts from chat-room instant-message discussions identified 13 thematic categories related to chatter characteristics, prevention needs, and intervention delivery.
Chatters were looking for sexual partners, were not open about their orientation, lacked basic information about HIV, had questions about how to be tested, and perceived a lack of general community resources to meet their needs.when compared with those who meet one another in traditional physical spaces.
