Health Promotion Projects on HIV & Sexual Health

A randomized controlled trial evaluating the efficacy of enhanced and standard versions of HIV testing and counseling (HTC) in reducing sexual risk behaviors, increasing HIV retesting rate and risk perception among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Hong Kong

The objectives of the study are to evaluate the relative efficacy of an enhanced version of HIV testing and counselling (EHTC) versus standard-of-care HIV testing and counselling (SHTC) in reducing sexual risk behaviours, increasing retesting rate and risk perception among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Hong Kong. A parallel-group and non-blinded randomized controlled trial (RCT) will be conducted. A total of 430 participants will be randomly allocated into the intervention group receiving EHTC (n=215) and the control group receiving SHTC (n=215). Evaluation will be performed six months afterwards.
