Description:This study addresses the gap in the literature on protective factors for Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) stigma and attitudes among Black men who have sex with men (BMSM) and young adults using the Developmental Assets Framework to examine how external assets (e.g., family support, open family communication, and communication with parents about sex and drugs) can help reduce stigma and increase positive attitudes toward PrEP use.
