Participants will be contacted by a member of the Engage Montreal study staff one year after their first Engage study visit, to book a one-year follow-up appointment.

Participating in the Engage one-year follow-up visit will provide information on the real-time evolution of the sexual health of men who have sex with men over time and is an excellent opportunity to make a very precious and tangible contribution to advancing men’s sexual health in Montreal and across Canada. If you choose to participate, to compensate you for your time and transportation costs, you will receive 50$ cash at the end of your visit. For this follow-up visit, you will not be asked to recruit other men to participate in this study.

Engage is a national multi-site, cross-sectional study in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, that utilizes several innovative research methodologies (e.g., respondent driven sampling, sexual partner matrix analyses, and mixed-methods). The primary objectives of the study are to measure prevalent and recent infections of HIV and other STIs among the gbMSM populations of these major Canadian cities. This will allow researchers to assess variations across regions and conduct detailed analyses linking prevention efforts to health outcomes. These results will be used to inform promising HIV-STBBI prevention strategies for gbMSM. Engage is funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR), the Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN), the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR), Service de lutte contre les ITSS du Ministère de santé et des services sociaux du Québec and Ryerson University.
