GPS is a sexual health promotion and HIV prevention peer-delivered counselling program. The GPS program has 4 parts: information provision about HIV and sexually transmitted infections, motivational interviewing counselling, sexual health behavioural skills building, and linkage to care. The adaptation grant has three goals: 1) to establish a multi-region and multi-sectoral team that can deliver the revised program across a variety of settings, 2) to learn how best to deliver this program as individual counselling program and also how to adapt this program for HIV-negative MSM, and 3) to pilot the individual program in 5 settings across Ontario and British Columbia. The research team will evaluate the pilot adaptation through mixed methods, employing a quantitative questionnaire and one-on-one semi-structured interviews.
