Abstract

There are a growing number of Internet-based approaches to offering young people screening for sexually transmitted infections. This paper explores young men’s views towards the barriers and facilitators to implementing an Internet-based screening approach. The study sought to consider ways in which the proposed intervention would reach and engage men from across ages and socio-economic backgrounds.
