The goal of the proposed research program is to reduce HIV vulnerabilities and promote resilience through active engagement of self-identified heterosexual ACB men in community HIV responses, programs, research, and policy. We will engage and mobilize self-identified heterosexual ACB men who are: aged 16 and over; residing in the Greater Toronto Area, London, Ottawa, and Windsor and HIV-positive or have never been diagnosed with HIV. We will also engage service providers and other relevant stakeholders to work closely with heterosexual ACB men. We will use multiple methods of recruitment and a combination of methods for data collection and KTE. Our research program will address the programming and policy gaps affecting heterosexual ACB men in Ontario, reduce HIV-related and another social stigma, enhance HIV prevention messaging in ACB communities, and strengthen ACB men’s involvement in community responses to HIV in ACB communities.
