Community Collaboration Ups HIV Prevention Among Gay and Bi Black and Latino Men

They found that 9,494 Black and 3,528 Latino gay and bi men received PrEP services in the THRIVE jurisdictions. Between 2014 and 2018, HIV diagnoses among Black same-gender-loving men were 4.2% lower in THRIVE jurisdictions than in THRIVE-eligible but unfunded jurisdictions. But in areas where community groups and health departments worked together to get PrEP to Latino men, HIV diagnoses dropped by 2.7%. There was a similar, statistically significant difference between HIV diagnoses among 35- to 44-year-old Latino gay and bi men. Notably, during this same time, New York City reached the UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals separate from the THRIVE funding.
