Advances in HIV research are changing how we understand HIV transmission, prevention, and treatment.

What is Engage?

Engage is a research study that relies on social networks to recruit participants - after guys join the study, they are asked to invite people from their networks to participate too.

Participation will involve testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and taking a survey to help us understand what influences the sexual health of gay, bi, and queer men, including trans men, and other men who have sex with men. Over the next four years, Engage will conduct research studies in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to help us understand how new knowledge and options for testing, treatment and prevention are changing the face of HIV.
