The target population for FOF is African American men who:
- are 18- to 29-years old,
- have sex with women (MSW),
- report STD symptoms and/or are newly diagnosed with an STD,
- report their HIV status as negative or unknown, and
- used a condom in the last 3 months.
This population is in a demographic group highly impacted by HIV whose risk is due to the lack of consistent and correct use of condoms and lubricant as a means of protection. FOF is most effective in geographic areas with high STD rates and a high proportion of clients who are young African American males who have sex with women.
