PrEP Options, Exploring Messages to Plan for Sex (POEMS) is a study to understand how young men usually plan for safe sex. We want to learn if we can help by creating tools to help them choose what type of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) dosing option is best for them. There are a lot of ways to reduce your chances of getting HIV, but one of the most effective strategies is PrEP. Young men aged 16-24 years old will take part in an 8-week study that involves two surveys and daily short surveys. Next, focus groups will be held to inform intervention design for different dosing options, with a particular focus on “on-demand” PrEP strategies.
