Abstract

The current paper reports on a study examining the use of a tabletbased multimedia intervention to increase HIV test rates among patients in a New York City hospital Emergency Department (ED) serving the Harlem area. The findings from this qualitative analysis of 40 ED patient interviews indicates how tablet-based multimedia can be expanded and adapted to serve a wide-range of at-risk populations and address salient public health concerns including the reduction of blood-borne disease transmission, drug overdose reduction, and increasing the health, empowerment and well-being of historically stigmatized and marginalized populations in global contexts.
