Project Description

This project aims to adapt ESTEEM — a cognitive behavioral therapy-based intervention aimed at promoting personal agency and resilience to improve the mental and sexual health of young gay and bisexual men (GBM) — as a community-based, peer-driven pilot intervention to mitigate HIV-related stigma (e.g., including stigma using pre-exposure of prophylaxis or PrEP) among HIV-negative GBM in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where the delivery format is more congruent with cultural practices. If successful, this intervention can be applied to other settings where resources are limited.
