Messages4Men is a study to try out short health messages among black and Latino men who have sex with men (MSM). The goal is to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) develop better health information messages for these populations, based on new and emerging information. Latinos Salud
is the CDC's Fort Lauderdale partner.
Latinos Salud was founded in 2008 to create a safe space for Latino Gay guys and their partners to find friends, support, and resources. The agency’s 13 staff members hail from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela. Whether they’re meeting one-on-one or staging a community event, Latinos Salud staff members work to make a stronger community.
There’s also a very serious purpose behind the agency’s work. The greater Ft. Lauderdale area (Broward County) currently ranks first in the nation in its rate of new HIV infections, and second in its rate of new AIDS cases. Latinos Salud’s programs give guys the skills they need to stay safe from HIV or to live healthier with HIV. From the moment you enter here, you are treated like family.
