THRIVE’s R3 model – indigenously designed and delivered – is a community-driven response to the overwhelming number of Black SLG men living with HIV who are routinely lost to care. In developing the peer-led model, we improved on CDC EBI best practices by centering our distinct needs, desires, lessons, insights, and lived experiences as Black Same Gender Loving men living with HIV. R3 improves the quality of life of Black SGL men living with HIV through health forums, community engagement and linkage events, peer-led individualized health care support, advocacy trainings, social + digital campaigns, ceremonies to celebrate the resilience of Black SGL Men living with HIV, and more!
