The Together Study is a five-year study focusing on gay couples and HIV prevention. HIV prevention efforts among gay men in the US have broadened in scope to incorporate the social, cultural, interpersonal, and contextual factors associated with HIV infection and transmission. The Together study will determine if a health intervention in-person or online will assist gay couples in building the skills they need to negotiate and use risk-reduction strategies within their relationship to prevent HIV. This study is one of the first to look at the unique HIV-prevention needs of gay couples in the San Francisco Bay Area.
