Request for Proposals: Implementation of E-Health HIV Prevention Intervention Keep It Up!

Apr 01, 2019 | Andrea Grenadier

Northwestern University’s Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing is requesting proposals from community-based organizations (CBOs) and other HIV service organizations to implement Keep It Up! (KIU!), an online e-health HIV prevention intervention, as part of their existing HIV testing services. The goal of this project is to understand how CBOs can best implement KIU!, the first eHealth HIV prevention intervention the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) classified as “best evidence.” Applications are due May 13, 2019, at 11:59 pm CT.

KIU! is an online, interactive individual-level intervention for young men who have sex with men (YMSM). It can be used across devices (i.e., phones, tablets, and computers), and it uses a variety of content (e.g., videos, interactive animation, and games) to increase HIV knowledge, motivate and teach safer behaviors, and instill self-efficacy for HIV prevention strategies. KIU! was recently designated by the CDC as a best evidence risk-reduction intervention and is the first online HIV prevention program developed for young gay and bisexual men to be included in the Compendium of Evidence-based Interventions and Best Practices for HIV Prevention1.

Eligible organizations include nonprofit public or private organizations that offer HIV prevention and testing services in one of 44 counties (see Appendix F of the RFP here: https://bit.ly/2TINTHu.) For more information, visit here.
