|Metodology||This RCT compared the 12-week LSC soap opera video series with 12 weekly HIV prevention messages; both were delivered to smartphones provided to participants. Data were collected at screening and for those who screened in and were accepted, a short baseline interview followed. Upon completion of the intervention, a 3 month (T2) interview was conducted, and smartphones were returned. Twelve weeks later (at 6 months), a final follow-up interview was conducted (T3).
