Principal Investigator: Natalie Leblanc and Adrian Juarez

The proposed study will investigate the acceptability of this eHealth prevention toolkit for Black heterosexual couples. We propose to enroll 30 Black heterosexual couples to use the toolkit and participate in individual and dyadic cognitive semi-structured interviews to share their perspectives about the toolkit. The study aims are three-fold: 1) describe Black heterosexual couples’ attitude toward the eHealth HIV prevention toolkit; 2) identify which components of the toolkit were relevant to couples including components couples liked, disliked, and would like to see improved; 3) explore what additional content and activities couples would want included in a toolkit for them.
