About the Presentation
Using the HIV Prevention Trials Network 061 (HPTN 061) cohort of black MSM and the Project 18 (P18) Cohorts 1 and 2 of minority MSM, we are currently evaluating longitudinal associations between multiple levels of CJI (stop-and-frisk, arrest, incarceration) and STI/HIV risk outcomes (e.g., sexual risk behaviors, STI, HIV, and viral load). We describe the potential mediating roles of CJI-related disruption of social support networks, stigma, poverty, and resulting depression and substance use.
