Participants in this PILOT course will learn how to facilitate the Sin Buscar Excusas/No Excuses intervention at their organization. Sin Buscar Excusas/No Excuses is a single-session, small group, video-based behavioral intervention that aims to increase sexual safety and HIV testing among Latino men who have sex with men (MSM). Adapted from the widely disseminated VOICES/VOCES intervention, Sin Buscar Excusas/No Excuses can be delivered in clinics and community agencies. Groups last about 45-60 minutes and include three core elements:
- Viewing an English- or Spanish-language video in a small-group setting that assures privacy;
- Structured brief discussion;
- Condom distribution, the offer of an HIV test, and referrals for additional services and supports.
