Brockton, MA | Brockton Area Multi-Services Inc. (BAMSI)
In keeping with the mission statements of both Getting to Zero and the HIV Prevention arm of Brockton Area Multi-Services Inc, this project works to connect people living with HIV who are undiagnosed with medical care and services in Plymouth county. This project is truly innovative in that it approaches the issue through the strategic and deliberate use of social media for gay and bisexual men. This method was chosen after consideration of the lack of spaces for direct communication for GLBT men, and therefore the overrepresented role of social media in interactions for these groups. Over the next six months, BAMSI hopes to successfully reach 300 local men with educational messaging and recruit a minimum of 100 men for HIV/STI screening and PrEP navigation services.
