Many Men, Many Voices (3MV) is a group-level intervention program designed to prevent HIV and STDs among high-risk Black men who have sex with men (MSM) and who may or may not identify themselves as gay. 3MV aims to foster a positive self-image, educate participants about their STD/HIV risks, and teach risk reduction and partner communication skills. Monetary incentive is provided for completing this program.
