ATN 160: TechStep has completed enrollment, with over 250 participants involved!
TechStep is a two-condition, technology-based RCT, with a stepped care approach, among high-risk HIV-negative trans feminine, trans masculine, and gender non-conforming (here after: trans*) youth for reducing sexual risk behaviors (e.g., condomless anal intercourse, engagement in sex work, sex while feeling the effects of alcohol or drugs) and increasing PrEP uptake.
All participant follow-ups will be completed by May 2022. Look for baseline data findings coming soon, and more research findings after data collection finishes. Meanwhile, you can learn more about TechStep’s study design here and check out some of the app’s screenshots below.
