Abstract

 

HIV is a major public health concern among men who have sex with men (MSM). Data on cohort recruitment techniques and associated costs have not been well examined. We looked at three recruitment techniques (electronic, in-person and print) used to enroll eligible MSM with HIV into the Engage[MEN]t study in Atlanta, Georgia. Cost-data was calculated per recruitment method and cost per enrolled participant was analyzed by race and age. In-person recruitment was the most expensive per enrolled participant, and white/Caucasians and those older than 50 years were more expensive to recruit. These data provide estimates that can be used for budgeting, grant writing and determining where and when to allocate resources to enroll harder to reach participants.
