Yale Researchers Join with APNH to Expand New Haven HIV Prevention

APNH: A Place to Nourish Your Health, formerly AIDS Project New Haven, is working with Yale University researchers to develop an intervention that uses social networking apps to engage more young Black and Latino gay and bisexual men in HIV prevention.

The project, called Chat4Change, is a collaboration between APNH, CIRA, the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) and the Yale School of Medicine.

Chat4Change will connect young Black and Latino gay and bisexual men to peer health counselors using popular social networking apps to support conversations about sexual health and community resources. The project is supported by a 3-year, $1 million grant from the Connecticut Department of Health that was awarded to APNH, a New Haven-based non-profit that has been serving people with or at-risk for HIV for over 35 years.
