Many Men, Many Voices (3MV) is a 7-session group-level intervention program to prevent HIV and sexually transmitted diseases among black men who have sex with men (MSM) who may or may not identify themselves as gay.
The intervention addresses factors that influence the behavior of black MSM: cultural, social, and religious norms; interactions between HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases; sexual relationship dynamics; and the social influences that racism and homophobia have on HIV risk behaviors. 3MV sessions aim to foster positive self-identity, educate clients about their risk for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases, and teach assertiveness skills. Clients who participated in the evaluation of 3MV were from three CDC-funded community-based organizations.
