What is PATH?

PATH, "Promoting Action Towards Health," is a study conducted by researchers at Columbia University and Yale University. PATH is a project to develop effective counseling for men who have sex with men (MSM) and have been recently diagnosed with HIV. PATH is designed to promote positive health behaviors, reduce HIV risk and increase selfawareness. PATH provides one-on-one counseling and financial compensation for participants.

PATH is designed for men who
  • have been diagnosed with HIV (within the past 12 months);
  • are 18 and older;
  • engage in sexual activity with other men;
  • and speak and understand English.
