The primary aim of this study is to fully test a culturally/religiously-tailored, church-based HIV screening intervention (TIPS) against a standard HIV information intervention on HIV screening rates at 6 and 12 months with adult African American church members and community members who use church outreach services. Our secondary outcome is to reduce sexual risk behaviors with this same population.
