This chapter describes a community-based participatory research (CBPR) partnership comprised of community members; representatives from community-based organizations (CBOs), including Latino-serving organizations; and academic researchers engaged in nontoken, collaborative research to explore HIV risk and a broad range of intervention approaches to meet the priorities and needs, and build on the assets, of recently arrived immigrant Latinos in the Southeastern United States. We initially focused on adult heterosexually active Latino men; however, based on the partnerships established, the trust gained, and the expansion of diverse voices within the partnership, our research has expanded to identify and address the priorities of Latino men who have sex with men (MSM) and Latina women. Thus, this research is conducted in partnership with the affected community and follows a systematic process that begins with formative research and moves toward action, including intervention development, implementation, and evaluation.

Keywords: Southeastern United States; intervention approaches; CBPR
