This is a clip taken from Keep It Up! (KIU!), a multi-media, Internet–based HIV prevention project developed specifically for 18-24 year old men who have sex with men who recently tested HIV negative.  The KIU! website is engaging and interactive with information presented in various formats like games, animation, and videos.  Keep It Up! is entirely online giving participants the flexibility to choose when and where to complete it.  Participants who complete KIU! will receive a $20 gift card as well as have the opportunity to receive an additional $20 in gift cards: $10 after completing the six week follow-up survey and $10 after completing the twelve week follow-up survey.

KIU! is currently implemented at Center on Halsted as a Community-Level Intervention funded by the Chicago Department of Public Health through funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
