New HIV/AIDS Intervention for Black MSM

Men of African-American Legacy Empowering Self (MAALES), a new prevention strategy, reduces HIV/AIDS transmission among gay and bisexual Black men and cut risky sexual behavior by 49 percent, says a new study. MAALES is a series of group sessions that address condom negotiation, media representations of gay Black men, self-esteem and past trauma, writes HealthCanal.com
