The study, released in the May issue of the Journal of Medical Internet Research, considered the efficacy of 13 different initiatives published in studies over the past 14 years. Using tactics ranging from text messages to interactive web sites, researchers have taught men to reduce high-risk behaviors, to get tested more frequently, and to reduce the shame and stigma surrounding the virus. Interestingly, the digital medium that was most effective was a web-based media intervention. Different iterations of this method combined videos and interactive components that the user completed over the course of several days, weeks or months. And these media interventions were best at getting the men to reduce their at-risk behaviors and make them more likely to disclose their HIV status to a partner.
