Multimedia Connect is a a computer-supported HIV prevention intervention for couples at risk for HIV developed by the School of Social Work's Social Intervention Group (SIG) and CCNMTL. The multimedia intervention provides supplemental facilitator training and support materials and participant activities. Together, SIG and CCNMTL have created a framework for delivering a proven intervention curriculum in a way that scaffolds the facilitator, while providing new options for national dissemination.

Multimedia Connect is funded by the National Institute for Mental Health (NIMH) and is part of a 5-year study testing ease of intervention adoption at community based organizations in New York State.

The Multimedia Connect is a Triangle Initiative project.
