Trans Women Connected (TWC)
ETR served as an external evaluator for an NIH-funded project awarded to dfusion, Inc. to develop and test an HIV prevention intervention for transgender women ages 18 to 49. The intervention is a mobile app delivered sexual health promotion program designed specifically for transgender women. The mobile app includes 42 interactive activities plus resource maps, opportunities for mentoring, and a communication forum for connecting with other transgender women. The evaluation featured an individual randomized controlled trial. Participants were randomized to receive the TWC app or access to a different app focusing on COVID and COVID resources. Participants controlled how often and when they used the apps. Surveys were collected before using the materials and 1-, 3-, and 6-months after the baseline survey from all participants choosing to complete them.
