We have conducted research on how the Mpowerment Project is tailored and adapted for Latino MSM.  This document discusses how the Mpowerment Project (MP) may be adapted to meet the HIV prevention needs of young Latino gay and bisexual men. The document focuses on issues related to design and implementation of the MP model for Latino gay and bisexual men and is part of our research effort to help adapt MP and share best practices based on what has worked so far in the experience of community based organizations (CBOs) implementing MP with Latino men. In addition, we offer some recommendations on how to operationalize and integrate issues impacting Latino gay and bisexual men for CBOs to consider before and during implementation of MP in order not to compromise the integrity and the potential efficacy of the intervention. 
The Spanish version of the Mpowerment Project manual is a comprehensive guide to implementing the Mpowerment Project (see PDF below).  Module topics of the manual include an Overview, Core Group, Community Assessment, M-groups, Formal Outreach, and much more.   We sincerely hope it can help in your efforts to implement the Mpowerment Project with Spanish speaking populations.  
The Spanish version was developed by colleagues in Guatemala that we at CAPS adapted and refined. As you use it, we would greatly appreciate your feedback and comments on how to improve it.
La versión en español del manual del Proyecto Mpowerment es una guía comprensiva sobre cómo implementar el Proyecto Mpowerment. Tópicos de los módulos del manual incluyen un Resumen del Proyecto, Grupo Impulsor, Grupos M, Alcance Formal, y mucho más. Esperamos sinceramente que esta guía ayude en sus esfuerzos para implementar el Proyecto Mpowerment con poblaciones que hablan español.
