Welcome to this online test of CONDOMS, PrEP, BOTH, NEITHER? Thank you for helping us develop it. Please continue if you are a man who has had sex with another man (or think you may do so in the future).
What is it about?
It is an online tool that helps men decide whether in the future to choose condoms, PrEP, both of them or neither of them (don't worry if you don't know about PrEP, the tool will tell you). If you already know what you want to do the tool will help you think about your choice. At the end we ask you what you thought about the tool.
How long will it take?
Making this important decision is worth taking some time over. You can work through the tool in about 20 minutes, or you can take more time if you want to work through it slowly.
Why should I take part?
This is a test of the tool and your taking part will improve it before it goes on line. Men making the best choice for themselves will increase the liklihood they get better sex with less harm. By taking part you might learn something new.
Who is running this test?
