Project Moxie: Results of a Feasibility Study of a Telehealth Intervention to Increase HIV Testing Among Binary and Nonbinary Transgender Youth.
AIDS Behav. 2020 May; 24(5):1517-1530.AB

Abstract

Transgender youth have low rates of engagement in HIV prevention, shaped in part by experiences of transphobia and lack of access to culturally competent care. Project Moxie tested the feasibility of an intervention that provides home-based HIV self-testing coupled with video-chat counseling. A diverse sample of 202 binary and nonbinary transgender youth (TY) were recruited online, and randomized 2:1 to receive the intervention or a control condition of only home-based HIV self-testing. TY were willing to order HIV self-testing kits and report their results. Half of those in the intervention arm opted to use the video-chat counseling and, among those who did, levels of satisfaction were high. Project Moxie demonstrates the ability to recruit TY online and provide them with access to home HIV testing. Further work is required to develop online interventions for youth who do not wish to receive counseling through video-chat formats.
