Abstract

This study explored the feasibility and acceptability of a bundled human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing program for young gay and bisexual men (YGBM). YGBM aged 18-26 years (N=55) were recruited to receive HPV vaccine with optional HIV testing and personalized counseling. Sexual risk behaviors and knowledge were assessed at three study visits. By visit 3, about 98% had received an HIV test with HPV vaccination; 59% received repeat HIV testing. Findings support the bundling of HPV vaccination with HIV testing among YGBM. Future directions include examining the scalability of integrating clinic-based HIV and HPV healthcare services.
