The Specific Aims for this project are:

Specific Aim 1: Determine the relationship between neighborhood-level factors based on GPS-defined activity space neighborhoods (e.g. poverty, HIV prevalence and access to healthcare services, our primary predictors) and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) uptake and adherence

Specific Aim 2: Characterize the relationship between social and sexual network characteristics (e.g. network size, frequency of communication with network members, and material support, our primary predictors) and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) uptake and adherence

Specific Aim 3: Identify interactive effects of neighborhoods and social and sexual networks on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) uptake and adherence
