Active Comparator: Conventional video
This arm will receive a one-minute conventional video promoting HIV test uptake.
Behavioral: Conventional Video
Participants will watch a one minute video whose purpose is to increase HIV testing uptake. This video was created by a local CDC via direct CDC funding and internal guidance and development.
Experimental: Crowdsourced video
This arm will receive a one-minute crowdsourced video promoting HIV test uptake.
Behavioral: Crowdsourced Video
Participants will watch a one minute video whose purpose is to increase HIV testing uptake. This video was the winner in a crowdsourced video contest hosted in China. CBOs all submitted their own independently designed and funded videos.
- First-Time HIV Testing [ Time Frame: Up to 4 weeks following the video intervention ]All individuals enrolled in the study will receive a cell phone text message three weeks later asking if they have received an HIV test. Among those individuals who do not respond to the text message, another text will be sent at four weeks after the video. We anticipate the median duration of follow-up to be approximately 3.5 weeks following the video intervention.
- Likelihood of HIV Testing [ Time Frame: Up to one day ]All individuals will be asked how likely they are to test for HIV soon immediately before and after watching the videos (during enrollment). Likelihood of HIV testing will be measured on a 4-point numerical Likert scale rating scale. 0 will be "very unlikely", 1 will be "unlikely", 2 will be likely, and 3 will be very likely. The percentage of individuals who report increased likelihood of HIV testing will be reported.
- Cost-effectiveness of Developing HIV Testing Promotional Videos [ Time Frame: Up to one year ]Cost-effectiveness of developing the crowdsourced video compared to the conventional video
